Thiago Alcantara

Recommended Posts

I'm waiting for whatever the club announce. A bit naive, I know, but that's how I learn about our signings. You know ....leaning on things at Melwood and such. I'll still check in, though,.

We’ve got to get this deal done. Even though we’re well stocked in this position opportunities  to sign ready made world class players don’t come around very often. 

 

Get it it done Reds*

 

*fully expect another premier league club to sign him

Rummenigge told @julienwolffwelt and me @WELTAMSONNTAG
about Thiago: „We are expecting an offer these days.” And: „It was important for him that he showed that he can play well in the big games. When he leaves Bayern munich, that hurts a bit“ #fcbayern #LFC
 
Just get him signed you fucking cunts.
 
Then there's this:
 

Fabrizio Romano @FabrizioRomano 4h
Thiago Alcantara is waiting because he strongly wants to move to Premier League this summer. Liverpool are still in contact with him but Bayern told again 2 days ago they’re going to sell Thiago only for €30m. Jürgen Klopp wants Thiago too. It’s up to the clubs.
#LFC #Bayern

 

Even this guy is a bullshitter, I can see this being true.

If United get him, expect a fan backlash.

Yep, they'll be down outside Ed Woodward's summer house in their Norwich scarves shouting 'Solksjaer is bobbins.'

United would be a big step down at this stage of his career. Domestic and European champion, stock has never been higher.......and you opt to go and be told how to play football by the ex-Cardiff boss

Klopp and Edwards aren’t stupid.  They will know exactly what Thiago wants to do and how late they can leave it because they will have told him how the club plan on going to sign him if that’s what they plan on doing at all.

 

The most obvious thing to me seems to be that Thiago is going to stay there another season just as Gini will here and then they both move at the same time for free.  Thiago hasn’t said a word throughout this whole thing.  Bayern are constantly talking and briefing the media about how he has to be sold this year, the price he has to be sold at, how they expect the bid from Liverpool, Man City and now Man Utd, how he was waking around the stadium with his family which was a symbolic farewell.  It’s never ending from them as they try to drum up business for his sale.  The reality is he can just refuse to go anywhere and walk out for free.  What may happen is that United or somebody come in and offer him a lot more money than us like the Werner situation but that could happen at any point anyway.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see if we are waiting to see if this happens and if it does we then offer Gini a four year deal.

Given the fees will be similar why does it make any financial difference to Liverpool wait a season to do these transfers ?  Not having Gini around for a year, with his mind on Barca ,would seem a good reason to get them done asap. Of course it could be Barca fucking about trying to delay it all until next summer but given they're desperate for new blood I doubt it.
