Bayern’s Thiago seals Liverpool move

EPL Champions beat Man U to signature

Bayern Munich have confirmed that Liverpool have agreed a deal to sign Thiago Alcantara.

The Premier League champions are closing in on a move for the 29-year-old after agreeing a €30 million (£27.2m) fee with Bayern Munich.

Liverpool had initially refused to meet Bayern’s asking price but it’s understood that both parties overcame that hurdle by agreeing for the deal to be paid in increments over a four-year period.

Thiago, meanwhile, has agreed a four-year contract with Jurgen Klopp’s side and will wear the No.6 shirt once he completes his move to Anfield.

‘I can confirm that FC Bayern have finally reached an agreement with Liverpool,’ Bayern’s CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told Bild on Thursday.

‘It was Thiago’s great wish to do something new at the end of his career.’

Thiago will be Liverpool’s second signing of the summer after they landed Greek left-back Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiacos for £11.75m in August.

According to reports, Thiago is due to undergo a medical with Liverpool on Thursday but will be not signed in time to make his debut against Chelsea on Sunday.
