Liverpool start their season in just a matter of days with a visit from Leeds United on the horizon. Uncharacteristically, the Reds still have some transfer business left to resolve before the curtain raiser. However, at least some of this business may be closer to completion than first thought. According to Fabrizio Romano, the Liverpool move for Thiago is entering the ‘key days’.
Liverpool chasing Thiago
There are few footballers in the world with the same eye for a pass as Bayern Munich’s Spanish playmaker.
As a result, the well documented Liverpool interest in Thiago makes sense – he is an elite player.
However, this interest has thus far not led to anything concrete. RMC Sport claimed recently the Reds had agreed a four-year-deal with the Spaniard but there have been no official moves made.
Liverpool and Thiago entering ‘key days’
According to Fabrizio Romano, the Liverpool move for Thiago is entering the ‘key days’.
The Spaniard has reportedly been given some extra days off by Bayern Munich and won’t be at training for Coronavirus testing.
This should indicate that the club are looking to get something resolved as soon as possible.
Romano also claims that Ronald Koeman is pushing for the signing of Gini Wijnaldum despite the Barcelona board preferring Thiago.
What RTK has to say
This has to come to an end at some point. Seriously, please, just somebody make a decision.
Liverpool signing Thiago would transform our midfield, please stop keeping us in suspense.
It does look as though Barcelona signing Gini Wijnaldum will finance the Liverpool move for the Spaniard.
However, just when these deals happen remains to be seen. Surely the club want all of this resolved before the weekend? Jürgen Klopp will want to be settling his squad sooner rather than later.
