Thiago is said to be keen to join Liverpool this summer

Liverpool have been chasing Thiago for most of the summer, with reports he can be snapped up for around £25million having entered the final year of his contract in Germany.

For now he remains a part of Bayern’s squad, having played the full 90 minutes and performed brilliantly as the Bundesliga champions humiliated Barcelona with a 8-2 victory to knock the Catalans out of the Champions League quarter-finals.

But it is widely expected he will leave this summer, with chiefs accepting he wants a new challenge elsewhere.

And Patrick Strasser, journalist for Bayern-based news outlet AZ Muenchen, has revealed Thiago wants to become a Liverpool player and has even announced his departure to his teammates in Bavaria.

Asked if the Spaniard will move to Anfield this summer, he told the Kick Off on talkSPORT:

“I think so yeah, he definitely wants to, and it’s just a matter of how many millions Bayern want to earn from this player.

“It’s said they want to make about €30m to €40m this transfer and I’m not sure if Liverpool can afford that or want to pay that.

“But Jurgen Klopp is desperate and keen to get Thiago in his squad.

“Thiago has already said goodbye to his teammates in Munich and the bosses know he’s going to leave.

“It’s just a matter of money, in the end.”
