Thiago Alcantara has given the Liverpool fanbase what they want after the club posted footage of his journey from Munich to Merseyside.
Supporters have been eager to see the midfielder’s official signing blog after the club finally agreed on a fee for his services. The Anfield outfit have been linked with Thiago for several months and at long last, the ongoing talks and speculation have come to fruition.
Is signing Diogo Jota good business for Liverpool?
Liverpool paid an initial £20million for their top transfer target and he has already gotten stuck into the action with his new team. Thiago featured in the Reds’ 2-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday after coming off the bench in the second half.
The former Bundesliga man impressed after completing a 10 out of 12 attempted long balls, one tackle and a 90% passing rate (via Sofascore).
Lots of Kopites have responded to Thiago’s video with nothing but genuine joy. One fan has commented saying ‘Liverpool are lucky’ to have the playmaker, whilst another has admitted they are ‘still pinching myself’ to make sure the signing actually happened.
The club has shared the montage of the Spaniard’s travelling and contract signing duties. Read more replies from the Twitter selection here:
