Bayern Munich expect midfielder Thiago Alcantara to join Liverpool this summer, but the Reds are yet to register an official bid.
That’s according to The Athletic’s Simon Hughes (relayed via @LFCTransferRoom), who claims the 29-year-old and his club are awaiting a move from Michael Edwards.
Will Thiago be a Liverpool player next season?
The links between Thiago and Liverpool have been ongoing, yet the player is no closer to joining the club. It appears as though finances are the problem for the Reds, despite Bayern lowering their asking price to £23million (via Daily Mail).
Jurgen Klopp recently admitted that he can’t say for sure who will be joining the ranks this summer.
“Due to Covid-19 you have to think five times about what you can and what you can’t do. We always have to pay attention to the financial aspect. We don’t know how much money will come in,” he told Servus TV (via Metro).
Liverpool fans have hit out at the news that the club is yet to make an offer for Thiago. One supporter has put the owners in the spotlight by asking ‘what have FSG done with all the finances?’
Another Red is suggesting that this is typical of Fenway Sports Group, who were also unsuccessful in signing heavily-linked target Timo Werner earlier this year. The fan has said ‘I hate them for that’.

What have FSG done with all the finances? Sorry if they cannot sign Thiago then FSG need to consider selling LFC.

This saga though🙄🙄🙄…quality player but @lfc don’t wanna spend . Leeds just paid same amount for a certain Rodrigo and some clubs are ready to pay 200m for a 33yrs old Superstar

Is this not similar to the great belief from Germany that Lfc we’re gonna sign Timo? 💯

If any other club that is serious need Thiago. They should go for him. Liverpool never serious when comes to transfer. I hate them for that.
