James Pearce has claimed that a fee of 30million euros has been agreed with Bayern for Thiago. If true, I don't think it's a coincidence we've finally moved forwards with the negotiations right after we agreed a fee with Sheffield United for Brewster. Would be over the moon if we (finally) sign Thiago!

I think €30 mil for a 29 year old with less than a year on his contract is a bit too steep.

17 Sep 2020 10:46:18
Top lfc journalists, now stating. Deal is £20m paid over the course of the 4 year deal. With £5m add ons linked to premier league and champions league success. Cracking deal! Fantastic player with experience and winning mentality.

17 Sep 2020 10:46:40
time will tell, let's face it, £30m is a lot of money, but in football, as in many things, a player is worth what somebody will pay.

Time will tell if he proves worth the investment, I for one will ignore the money and enjoy the player dictating the tempo for Liverpool. If it happens that it.

I hope Ginni stays, but wish him all the very best if he goes, he has been a wonderful servant and we were all a little underwhelmed when he signed!

17 Sep 2020 10:54:11
i've seen other rumours its a 20m fee with 5m of bonuses. Tbh it doesn't matter as its not our cash and I am guessing someone is in the process of leaving to free up the funds and space in the squad.

Yes it's dragged out but the club have got it done and now need to make it official with the anfield lean.

17 Sep 2020 10:54:54
I heard it was £20m up front and add ons based upon winning trophies etc to take it to £27m.

17 Sep 2020 10:55:07
apparently he stayed in the Titanic hotel last night, in town to do the deal!

17 Sep 2020 10:55:30
He’s a 60m baller all day long if not more! We’ve sold solanke and Ibe for 20m a pop u jokin!

17 Sep 2020 11:03:25
Red Rumour- he's one of the best players in the world. €25m rising to 30 looks good business to me.

17 Sep 2020 11:03:32
It’s £20m plus £5m add ons, for a world class player in this day and age is not “steep”.

17 Sep 2020 11:05:08
Ed 2 has confirmed it to be true so it must be true! feel sorry for Brewster if he's making way for it to happen, but hope he proves LFC wrong and goes on to be a success where he ends up.

17 Sep 2020 11:05:41
keep walking up that hill then mr rumour Thiago is top top class.

17 Sep 2020 11:05:59
The one thing this phenomenal LFC side has lacked is a world-class ball-playing midfielder.

The current midfield has been exceptional and deserves all the praise it gets, but there are occasions when it's one-dimensional.

Thiago changes everything, plus he works his socks off.

17 Sep 2020 11:07:59
Red rumor, we're in 2020 mate.

17 Sep 2020 11:26:10
Fantastic new about Thiago.
World class player, worth every penny .

17 Sep 2020 11:26:54
Could turn out to be an incredible signing but like Fekir just going to wait till its actually confirmed

Spaceman no disrespect but that is an exact copy and paste of Henry Jacksons tweet earlier unless that's what you were going for haha.

17 Sep 2020 11:27:06
I don't think age is an issue because his style of play is not explosive so I think he can continue at his level for at least another 3 or 4 years. If he contributes to winning some trophies this season then the fee will seem very fair indeed.

17 Sep 2020 12:07:47
Welcome to Anfield Thiago Alcantara!

17 Sep 2020 12:47:21
If we retain the title he’ll have been worth every penny of his transfer fee, and that’s speaking as someone who had severe reservations about signing him.

17 Sep 2020 13:11:10
Yeah Red Rumor it appears nobody cares what you think but actually it's £20m guaranteed plus the rest in add-ons dependent on him being instrumental in helping us win the Premier League and Champions League. Sounds good to me!

I haven't seen him posing with a pen yet though, so not counting my chicken nuggets. But I'm sure Rodrigo told him how much he enjoyed playing against us on Saturday so shouldn't be a problem getting him to sign on the dotted line. Now hopefully his brother can find a good Premier League club where he'll thrive and be happy. (not West Ham)

17 Sep 2020 13:49:59
BBC reporting 20 mil plus 5 mil add ons paid over the course of his contract, so not bad all in all. 20 mil is what we paid for Lallana and JDR pointed out, sold Solanke for! Really happy with this, but I think we need to get rid of a MF, maybe not though, always good at have depth.

17 Sep 2020 14:08:49
He's top 3 midfielders on the planet, and ensures we have truly world class in each area of our team now.

17 Sep 2020 14:17:03
Bargain! How can some people be questioning the price?

James Tawkowski has had a 31 million bid turned down.

In today's market that's bang average fee for a world class player. Regardless of contract situation.

17 Sep 2020 14:25:22
adds some depth, quality and a plan b if we need to change thigns. Now all we need is to win the premier league, champ leauge, world cup super cup and FA cup to keep the mindless fans happy.

17 Sep 2020 14:46:02
Pretty sure he's going to be a big part of Plan A once he gets integrated into the team.
With his passing added to our fullbacks creativity we are going to tear a few teams apart.

17 Sep 2020 14:50:29
Playing devils advocate here, Thiago is a great signing, world class player. However, he is adding depth to an already over crowded midfield, in a team already worryingly close to the home grown quota.

I trust Edwards and Klopp whole heartedly but worry that a more substantial ready made back up for the front three could shoot us in the foot. Will we be as lucky this year with injuries? nobody can tell the future but we are riding our luck in that area slightly.

17 Sep 2020 14:53:06
Bobbya_Teeth, that really does put it in context. In fact it seems like daylight robbery.

17 Sep 2020 15:35:30
@Corbra666, @Shanks and @Salah given Thiago's age, length of contract, being able to speak to foreign clubs in January and other clubs baulking at Bayern Munich valuation I would have thought we'd be in a strong bargaining position. Then again if Klopp tapped him up Bayern may have dug their heels in.

I suppose €20 mil plus add ons is not bad if he lives up to his billing. As someone posted "it's not my money".

17 Sep 2020 16:09:35
Nah, that 20 Million price plus add ons (and agent fees to be discovered later 😉) seems just about right for the C.V. era. In normal times 40 Million and more, would easily be a serious asking price. Skill, experience and loads of titles to back it all up. Where are you going to find that today? Yes he's 29 but he's not exactly on crutches, just yet.

17 Sep 2020 17:23:44
Caution lads and lasses - nothing has been concluded yet. From what I have read talks are not at an advanced stage yet. It would be a great bit of business if it comes off though. Fingers crossed.
