Thiago Alcantara has signed for Liverpool in a €30m deal after talks with Bayern Munich progressed rapidly this week, penning a four-year deal with the club.
The Spanish midfielder, who will take the No 6 shirt at Liverpool, leaves Munich having won plentiful trophies, including seven Bundesliga titles and last season’s Champions League.
“I think it’s an amazing feeling. I was waiting for this moment for a long time and I am very, very happy to be here,” Thiago said.
“It also [has] this kind of family [feeling] that I need because we [like to] have a very close relationship with the club and I think I will feel this, I will have this feeling, with this club as well.”
Liverpool’s midfield is also a dynamic engine room, but adding a different dimension, for a snip of a transfer fee, cannot hurt one bit.
One man who will not be overly enthused about this move is Naby Keita, as his already limited game-time could diminish even more, but in terms of the team unit, Liverpool could be about to become an even more formidable force.
