Ex-Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness believes Liverpool and are 'blackmailing' the Champions League winners over the signing of Thiago Alcantara.

The Spanish international has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer, and has made it known to the German club that he wants to explore a new challenge with just a year left on his contract.
