Liverpool, the last champion of the English Premier League, officially signed midfielder Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich. Liverpool signed a 4-year contract with the Spanish player. The £20m fee will be paid in installments over the length of 4-year, and could be up to an additional £5m will be paid based on the Reds’ success in the Premier League and Champions League by Thiago. Thiago will wear the number six shirt at Anfield. He will become the club’s second summer signing after Greece left-back Kostas Tsimikas.
A Good Deal For Thiago
Thiago Alcantara whose contract expires in 2021 and has decided to leave Bayern. Bayern has agreed to let him go to Liverpool on a £ 20 + 5 million deal which is below his worth according to Transfermarkt value which is around £ 44 million.
“Absolutely great – I’m really happy that it finally worked out and we could just do it,” said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
“I know all the people at Bayern wanted to keep him desperately. That’s normal and understandable because he played an important role, in the last season as well.
“He just was ready for a new challenge and he decided for us.”
It is generally not clear how good the players who play in Bayern are, because there is no competition in the German Bundesliga. However, the center midfielder, we believe Thiago plays the best off-ball game in the world nowadays. The man is a complete press crusher. Also, do not pay attention to the small body size. Although it takes up little space in the midfield, it is in the right place at such the right time, his defensive actions are also top-notch. Liverpool adds number 6-8 in the most form available for cookie money. Both Alex Oxlade Chamberlain and Naby Keita suffered frequent and severe injuries and could not increase the pace over time in the last season when Liverpool desperately in need.
Liverpool still needs the right man for the center back. Both Gomez and Matip are often injured. Fabinho can not perform the same in the center defense position, whereas we do not know if there are serious expectations from van Den Berg. At this point, we are sure that Liverpool would definitely be in need of a good partner to van Dijk.
