Fans told when Liverpool will make official move to sign Bayern Munich star Thiago
Liverpool will wait until the final week of the transfer window to make an official move for Thiago Alcantara.
The Reds are understood to be favourites to sign the Bayern Munich midfielder after it was revealed just a few weeks ago that he wants to leave Bayern Munich and seek a fesh challenge in the Premier League.
Manchester United have also been linked with a move for the midfielder, with reports suggesting that the giants have made contact with the 29-year-old agent, but signing another midfield player is not longer on their list of priorities following the arrival of Donny Van de Beek.
And according to talkSPORT’s transfer guru Alex Crook, Liverpool will not be making a move to sign Thiago until the very last week of the transfer window: “We’ve spoken a lot about this one, and it’s going to go right to the wire, I think,” said Crook.
“If Wijnaldum goes I think Liverpool will accelerate their interest.
“I know Manchester United have spoken to Thiago’s agent but midfield is not a priority for them at the moment.
“Liverpool are still the front runners, but they’re trying to force Bayern Munich to lower that €30m asking price.
“I’m not expecting a bid to come in probably until the final week of the window.”
Liverpool will be waiting to get Thiago for a fee cheaper than what Bayern want, and although fans want the deal to happen now, it would be a very smart move to make knowing that Thiago is set on a move to Anfield.
But there are many clubs interested and if Liverpool are playing that game, then they are giving clubs an opportunity to wrap up some kind of deal.
