Bayern to quickly reinvest Thiago money on Sergino Dest

Bayern Munich will move quickly to reinvest the money they receive for Thiago Alcantara – but it won’t be on a new midfielder.

According to Sky Sport, Ajax right-back Sergino Dest has agreed a five-year contract with Bayern.

And talks between the two clubs have intensified in recent days with Bayern keen to sign the USA international.

There are still slight differences when it comes to a transfer fee, with Ajax requesting €30m for Dest.

Initially, Bayern only offered €10m but the two sides have come closer since then.

Dutch outlet De Telegraaf reveals that a €15m offer was turned down on Tuesday, but talks are ongoing.

Barcelona have also been linked with Dest, 19, but are not financially in a position to make a bid.

Bayern have also considered Max Aarons of Norwich for the right-back position, but have not made a concrete offer.

Should Dest arrive at the Allianz Arena, he will be the second right-back alongside Benjamin Pavard.

The Bavarians do not plan to directly replace Liverpool-bound Thiago with a midfielder and will use Corentin Tolisso to fill the gap.

Tolisso was rumoured to be on his way out earlier in the summer, with Manchester United and Inter linked.

But the French international will now stick around after the club agreed to sell Thiago.
