Reds will agree on the €35m signing of Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich in the next week. Midfielders like Henderson, Keita and Wijnaldum all do a great job and fit perfectly into the system, but they are more about energy than quality at the highest level.
It’s not to say they need to be replaced completely, but adding someone like Spain international could take them to a whole new level. He openly admits that Alcantara’s time at Germany might be coming to an end, before signing that he is looking for a new challenge.
Bavarians chief Karl Heinz Rummenigge also said that Thiago wishes to leave the Bundesliga giants, confirming that if this stays the case that the midfielder will be sold.
The 29-year-old midfielder would certainly add a different dimension to Reds midfield, the deep-lying playmaker would add more creativity to the PL champions’ ranks in the middle of the park.
There’s no doubting that the Blaugrana academy graduate is one of the best in his role, he’s definitely one of the best passers of the ball in world football full stop. Thiago has bagged three goals and two assists in 35 games across all tournaments this campaign.
