Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara has shown that he will not be signing a new deal with the German champions and wants to leave the club to find a new challenge in the English Premier League.
Thiago has been with Bayern Munich since 2013 after he was signed from Barcelona by his former manager Pep Guardiola who indicated that he was the only midfielder that he wanted.
The Brazilian who represents Spain has won 7 league titles with Bayern Munich with 4 DFB-Pokal (German Cup) titles. Thiago Alcantara is a highly decorated player having won many trophies with both Barcelona and Bayern Munich. Liverpool is currently the number one team that is being linked with the Spanish international to sign the midfielder for about £35M.
Thiago Alcantara may end up with the Premier League champions very soon
Manchester United are also believed to be interested in signing the midfielder to widen their squad depth that already has on form Bruno Fernandez and Paul Pogba.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp dropped the biggest hint when he was asked about the midfielder saying, “I really like him a lot”.
Whether this is enough to indicate that Liverpool will get the signature of the player or not is something that we will have to keep tabs on.
