Liverpool target Thiago Alcantara helped guide Bayern Munich to their sixth Champions League title last night.
The Bundesliga champions were able to crack a tense deadlock between them and Paris Saint-Germain after Kingsley Coman scored the only goal of the match in the second half. His 59th minute strike was enough to see his side get their hands on another European trophy after a long campaign.
Will Thiago be a Liverpool player next season?
Another player who impressed in Lisbon last night was Thiago, with Liverpool fans especially pleased with his performance.
According to FotMob, the Spaniard made the most passes (75) and created the most chances (2) during the game, earning a Man of the Match rating of 8.0.
Kopites are discussing his Champions League success and whether his next chapter will see him sporting Liverpool red. One supporter has branded him as having the ‘perfect Champions League campaign’ whilst another has urged the club to ‘get the chequebook out’ and sign him up.
The Guardian has named Thiago’s latest asking price as €30million (£27.2m) but the Reds are reportedly stalling on paying that amount.

He had the perfect Champions League campaign – played his way into the Liverpool side or he'll get a good new deal with Bayern

Absolute baller. Firm and clean passes. Very quick in compact spaces. Although his vision for that killer pass and ball retention ability is his greatest asset. He will excel in the PL to say the least

Class. Absolutely so calm on the ball. Always knows where he’s going. He’d fit perfect here.
