Liverpool have completed the deal to sign Spanish international Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich.
Thiago has put pen to paper on a four-year deal with the Reds and becomes the club’s second signing of the transfer window, following Kostas Tsimikas in August.
He moves to Anfield fresh from helping Bayern clinch a treble as they won the Bundesliga, German cup and Champions League in 2019-20, during which he featured 40 times.
“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,” Thiago told Liverpool’s official website.
“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.” Said the 29-year-old.
Thiago 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.
In total, he has won nine league titles, two Champions Leagues and two FIFA Club World Cups with both Bayern and Barca.
He will wear the number 6 jersey.
