As the opening week of the Premier League draws nearer, Liverpool continue to keep faith in signing Thiago Alcantara in time.
The Reds have been in talks with Bayern Munich over securing the signature of the Spaniard, but despite a long and ongoing saga, no official offer has been made from the English champions.
Which Premier League club will Thiago join this summer?
The Germans value their midfielder at £26.6million, which is a reasonable amount for a player who has just lifted the Champions League trophy. However, Liverpool are struggling with funds and could be holding out for the sale of Gini Wijnaldum before they can bid for Thiago.
Loads of Reds fans have responded to this update and some are concerned that their Northern rivals may snub their chances of signing Thiago after all this time. One supporter has tweeted ‘I have a bad feeling’ about the Thiago situation as they suspect a move to United could be on the cards.

Too high? They pay some players £350k a week. Liverpool’s highest earner is on £200k a week, so IF we’ve agreed terms with him, then so could Man Utd, easily.
