Liverpool FC has completed a deal for the permanent transfer of Thiago Alcantara from FC Bayern Munich.
The Spain international midfielder has put pen to paper on a long-term contract with the Reds and becomes the club’s second signing of the transfer window, following Kostas Tsimikas in August.
Moments after sealing the move, Thiago told LiverpoolFC.com: “I think it?s an amazing feeling. I was waiting for this moment for a long time and I am very, very happy to be here.
“When the years are passing, you are trying to win as much as you can — and when you win, you want to win more. I think this club describes what I am as well. I want to achieve all of the goals, win as many trophies as possible.
“It also (has) this kind of family (feeling) that I need because we (like to) have a very close relationship with the club and I think I will feel this, I will have this feeling, with this club as well.”
Thiago moves to Anfield fresh from helping Bayern clinch a prestigious treble, as they won the Bundesliga, German Cup and Champions League in 2019-20, during which he featured 40 times.
The 29-year-old, who also has 39 caps for Spain, spent seven seasons at the Allianz Arena, having transferred to Germany from FC Barcelona, where he began his career.
