How Liverpool signed Thiago Alcantara a Player worth £43.8m for £20m still baffles a lot of sports analysts.
Thiago Alcantara who has been on English Premier League Champions radar for the better part of the transfer window would finally join Liverpool on a long term deal as plans are been finalize to see the midfielder move to England from Germany.
The sensational Spanish midfielder who has been exceptional in Bayern Munich’s success in the Bundesliga would finally bid the club bye-bye.
However, Football market analysts are still shocked by how Liverpool have signed a player with a market value of £43.8m, for £20m (plus an additional £5m depending on bonuses). This is Staggering.
Just 2 weeks ago the Bundesliga giant Bayern Munich wanted 30 million with majority upfront for Thiago Alcantara, this morning Liverpool agreed to 20 million paid over 4 years with bonuses if he plays a big role in winning the premier league or the UEFA Champions League and he’ll be paid less than what Bayern offered him! Whatever way you look at it it’s a phenomenal deal for Liverpool.
Thiago Alcantara who currently has one year left on his contract would be turning 30 next year. Many people have argued that his age and the year left on his contract was a major bargaining chip for Liverpool FC.
Liverpool has also made enquires about Watford Senegalese Forward Ismail Sarr and discussed his situation. However, no bid had been made but he is being seriously considered as a backup option for the front three and Watford would want £36m+ for the prolific striker.
Watford has been aware of Liverpool’s interest in Ismaila Sarr ‘for some time’ and they will not stand in his way if the price is right.
Thiago Alcantara is set to sign a four-year deal at Liverpool and will wear the number 6 jersey, with Liverpool paying an initial fee of just £20m.
