Liverpool has already been crowned as the Premier League champions of the 2019-20 season. This win has ended their 30 years long wait for the top-flight title. Unfortunately, they have been eliminated from the Champions League by Atletico Madrid, so now they are focussing on planning for the next season.
The midfield of Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum and Naby Keita are known for their energy rather than for their quality on the ball. Liverpool could benefit from the signing of a playmaker who can provide more quality on the ball.
Bayern Munich’s chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has admitted Thiago Alcantara is seeking a new challenge, and therefore he could leave the German giants at the end of this season. He is out of contract at the Allianz Arena in 2021. Bayern is reluctant to lose him for free. So they would rather sell the Spanish international this summer.
Rummenigge, CEO of @FCBayern, confirmed that @Thiago6 wants to leave the Club. therefore he should be sold. Rummenigge: „We don't want to lose a player for free next year. I say that very clearly!“ @BILD_Sport— Christian Falk (@cfbayern) July 3, 2020
The 29-year-old has won 9 major league titles in his career so far. He won two LaLiga titles with Barcelona and has won seven Bundesliga titles with Bayern Munich. He has also won one Champions League title during his time at the Camp Nou.
According to many reports, Liverpool has agreed on personal terms with the midfielder. They are going to pay €35m to Bayern for Thiago.

Bid to Bayern to be tabled in next days: approx 35m€, Liverpool wanting to get 30m€ + 5m€ bonus
The La Masia [Barcelona’s youth academy] graduate would be a superb addition to Klopp’s squad if Liverpool could get the deal done.
Thiago Alcantara has been one of the best passing midfielders in Europe over the past few seasons. He still has 3-4 years left playing at the top level so he would definitely add more quality to the Liverpool midfield and strengthen their grip as one the European powerhouses.
