Thiago to ask for £200,000-a-week to sign with Liverpool this summer window
Thiago would ask for more than £200,000-a-week to join Liverpool, reports have come out and claimed.
After news broke just a few weeks ago revealing that Thiago now wants to leave Bayern this transfer window and make that move to the Premier League, Liverpool have been made favourites to wrap up a transfer deal.
Bayern are reportedly holding out for a €30 million (£27m/$36m) fee for a prized asset, although there has been reports in the media that Liverpool are more keen to wait and get a deal done for a fee of around £20 million.
But ESPN report that The Spaniard would become Liverpool’s highest earning player, with the National reporting that the Reds top earner, Mohamed Salah, is on £200,000-a-week.
Jamie Redknapp thinks Thiago would be a valuable addition to the current Liverpool squad, as he would add a bit of finesses to the side.
“We’ve often spoken about how good Liverpool’s midfield are, how hard-working they are, but sometimes they maybe lack that bit of finesse and that little bit of quality,” the former Reds star told Sky Sports.
“Thiago would give them something completely different, he’s one of the best midfield players in the world. He dictates the play, plays at his own pace.
“Sometimes, especially when you go to tough places in the Premier League, you cannot beat teams by going 100 mph all the time, you need a little bit of finesse and for someone to do things differently.
“Many years ago Liverpool had midfield players like Ronnie Whelan and Jan Molby who could just slow the game down and play at a tempo that suited them, Thiago could do that.
“We saw him in the Champions League final where he completely bossed the game, had so many touches of the ball and made the game look easy.”
There is no doubt about it, Thiago would be a brilliant signing for Liverpool, so it would be a waste to not even make a move for the man wouldnt it?
