Thiago has ‘said goodbye to Bayern’ ahead of Liverpool move

Liverpool target Thiago Alcantara has already said goodbye to Bayern and his teammates, according to German journalist Patrick Strasser.

Thiago has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield as manager Jurgen Klopp is thought to be a big fan of his.

Klopp wants the Spaniard to join Fabinho and Jordan Henderson in midfield.

Liverpool have now been given a boost in their pursuit of the playmaker. Speaking on TalkSport radio about whether Thiago wants to move, Strasser said: “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.”

The news could push Liverpool bosses into opening negotiations about a transfer fee.

Thiago played in last night’s Champions League thrashing of Barcelona.

The German side dominated throughout and were helped by goals from Thomas Muller, Robert Lewandowski and Barca loanee Philippe Coutinho.

Thiago is rated as one of the best midfielders in world football and would strengthen Klopp’s squad massively.

He’s won multiple league titles in both Spain and Germany and will add yet more class to Liverpool’s style of play.

Now aged 29, this could be the perfect time for Thiago to move and show his talent in another European league.

Liverpool have been fairly quiet during this transfer window, although they have now brought in Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiacos.

The left-back cost around £11.75 million and will provide cover for first-choice player Andy Robertson.

Barcelona: Henry and Pochettino linked with managerial job

Thierry Henry and Mauricio Pochettino have been touted as potential replacements for Quique Setien at Barcelona, according reports.

Setien could lose his job following the crushing defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League last night.

Bayern outclassed Barca from the start to go through to the semi-finals. Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry were just some of the names to get on the scoresheet.

The loss means Barca have failed to win a single trophy this season. It now looks like Setien will pay for this with his job.

Pochettino and Henry are joined by Ronald Koeman and Massimiliano Allegri on the list of potential managers, according to Diario Sport (via Daily Mail).

Pochettino has been linked with the Barca job in the past and could emerge to become the favourite. His style of play while at Tottenham is attractive to Barcelona President Josep Bartomeu.

Meanwhile, Henry has become a surprise frontrunner for the job. The Frenchman had a poor spell as manager of Monaco and is now managing Montreal Impact in the MLS.

Henry is linked with a job as a result of his close ties at the Nou Camp. The striker played there from 2007 to 2010 and won countless trophies during that time.

Former Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri is currently available and could be approached by the Spanish club. His managerial credentials are strong as he took Juve to four consecutive domestic doubles between 2015 and 2018.

The final manager on the list is Ronald Koeman. He currently manages the Dutch national team, although he could be tempted back into club football with a big money offer.

Koeman was Barca’s assistant manager between 1998 and 2000, before successful spells at the likes of Ajax and PSV.

The decision ultimately depends on whether Barca chiefs think Setien can turn the situation around. The club seem to be falling behind their European rivals and cannot afford another trophy-less season.
