Any Ed's got an update on the Thiago situation? The CEO of Bayern has said he's expecting an offer in the next few days and Fabrizio has stated Lpool are still in contact with his agent.

{Ed002's Note - Bayern Munich have made their position on Liverpool absolutely clear - and now they expect them to arrive with suitable and exceptable offer.}

Bayern Munich will not put up with Klopps bs. We need to do this one right although he's probably increased the price a bit from tapping up.

30 Aug 2020 20:05:57
in other words pay up or shut up.

30 Aug 2020 20:03:50
Do you expect a suitable and acceptable offer to be made or do you think Lpool will come in with a low ball offer?

{Ed002's Note - I really don’t know. They want £40M.

30 Aug 2020 20:35:13
£40M?! Wow, Fabrizio was saying closer to €30mil which would be around £25mil? I can see the reluctancy to pay £40mil for a player who is available for free next summer and is also 29.

30 Aug 2020 20:25:17
Ed002 I can’t see us offering anything like that and I don’t blame us. 1 year left on his contract nearly 30 with a history injuries and CV. They have there value and we will have one but if they want that much Ed I think there will be to much of a gap so I don’t see it happening maybe next season on a free transfer to replace Gini if the club does not want to give him a new deal.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have illegally tapped up the player and Bayern Munich are pissed. They quoted another side Euro 10M less which will be closer to what they will accept. Else Liverpool can wait until January and look to agree a move for next summer (if he is still available).}

30 Aug 2020 20:45:51
Wow, £40m is €44.9m. Most of the reports suggested Bayern wanted only €30m, which is reasonable. I wouldn't be keen on LFC paying what you have quoted Ed!

{Ed002's Note - It should have been Euro not £. They quoted Euro 30M to another side.}

30 Aug 2020 20:54:49
Typos too easy.

30 Aug 2020 21:12:30
Just like Van Dijk, the cost is about £10 million extra to Liverpool, simply because of the tapping up. The reputation of Liverpool fc is in the gutter with other clubs, so I hope they pay up and bring the Alcantra business to a conclusion.

If not, Liverpool have tapped up 2 players in Germany this year, causing disruption, refusing to pay asking price and then walking away. Dreadful conduct in truth.

30 Aug 2020 21:59:08
So Ed your telling us the tapping up is paying off (sarcasm)
He won’t be joining us not a hope €40m!
I’d say we turned the fax machine off once we got that quote.

{Ed002's Note - They will take less as I have explained.}

30 Aug 2020 23:27:53
MonkeyMad we paid similar for the OX in the same circumstances.

30 Aug 2020 23:29:16
Greenflash we conducted ourselves well with signing the OX, Fabinho and Allison? We are not always the bad guys.

31 Aug 2020 00:16:09
Yes true, but with Ox there was most likely not the same issues regarding age, wages etc. Made sense at the time.

31 Aug 2020 08:09:10
Hi Ed002, so what's your take on this Thiago saga? Will it be a >>>

A. Timo ending
B. VVD ending
C. Happy ending (for both Bayern and LFC)

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know right now. There is an option to wait until January and look for a deal for next summer.}

31 Aug 2020 09:43:14
Do we actually know if Liverpool have tapped him up for definitely? People just guessing? Putting 2&2 together?

{Ed002's Note - Yes and this has been done to death.}

31 Aug 2020 10:09:44
KingCarlos, I agree, which makes it even more difficult to understand why Klopp does it. I'm sure Klopp could have contacted these players correctly and persuaded them to join anyway.
Instead, Klopp gets caught out and the price goes up for Liverpool.

31 Aug 2020 10:26:12
Risk is if we wait until January then he might be gone elsewhere, if Gini leaves this window then surely we need him in now as replacement.

31 Aug 2020 18:28:30
Honestly don't want us to go to Jan and get him on a 'free' even if he doesn't move before then. It's a poor way to behave and it's a year less of peak Thiago.
