Reds manager Jurgen Klopp is keen to land the Spanish midfielder who recently helped the Bundesliga giants to the Champions League title with his heroics in the middle of the park, but his side must part with £27 million to have the chance of landing him.
The 29-year-old is also on Manchester City’s radar and he will help boost the title chances of Pep Guardiola’s side if he moves to the Etihad Stadium.
Thiago brings a lot of quality and experience to the table despite his age and injury record, and it’s why Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney is hoping that he doesn’t join his bitter rivals Liverpool.
The former Everton star even believes the Reds landing the Bayern star ‘is a better signing than Lionel Messi going to Man City’, and while not many will necessarily agree with him, it only speaks volumes about Thiago’s quality.
