The Thiago Alcantara to Liverpool saga continues to twist and turn as a new update has presented itself.
The Bayern Munich midfielder enjoyed a successful Sunday evening after lifting his side’s sixth Champions League trophy. Liverpool fans were loving watching their number one target celebrate, but a new update has emerged which could dampen their spirits.
Will Thiago be a Liverpool player next season?
According to Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol (relayed via @AnfieldEdition), it is viewed as ‘unlikely’ that the Merseyside outfit will meet Bayern’s £23million asking price. Although both Liverpool and Thiago want the move to happen, the Reds aren’t expected to spend that amount on a 29-year-old.
This update hasn’t gone down well with fans, who feel £23m is more than a fair amount for a Champions League winner – indeed his value actually remains much higher at £43.2m. One supporter has replied to the news saying it ‘would be unthinkable’ to let this deal fall through after months of speculation and interest shown.
Another fan thinks that a member of the Liverpool board ‘should be held responsible’ if the deal does not come to fruition.

FSG acting like it’s 100m, I’m not bothered about his contract running out just spend the 29m he’s world class.

Would be unthinkable for us not to make such a class signing.

Honestly, if Thiago doesn’t end up at Anfield this or next summer, someone at FSG should be held responsible for that.
