Liverpool finally agree transfer fee with Bayern for Thiago Alcantara

Thiago Alcantara

Liverpool have finally agreed a transfer fee for Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara.

The Reds have agreed a deal worth up to £25million for the player which is considerably lower than what Bayern wanted. The 29-year-old has already agreed personal terms on a 4-year contract.

Despite the ‘Liverpool FC clique’ of local and national journalists having insisted for months that Thiago was not a target, KOPTALK maintained throughout that if a fee could be agreed, that the player would be brought in. We predicted the hacks would start to you u-turn and they did and they will certainly have to now.

Had a fee not been agreed ahead of the transfer window closing, we expected a ‘take it or leave it’ formal offer to have been made during the final week of the window. Fortunately, a deal has been agreed meaning that Liverpool don’t have to pay as much – and as much upfront – as Bayern had originally been demanding.

The club are now preparing to organise a medical for the Spain international. He will wear the No.6 at Liverpool.

More on this on the members’ website and other potential deals plus we’ll discuss it further on KopTalk TV and on the KopTalk Podcast later today.
