Liverpool sign Thiago

All summer the Reds were linked with a move for Bayern Munich’s star midfielder.

The Spaniard purportedly told the Bavarian giants that he was unwilling to sign a new deal as he entered the final year of his contract.

This opened the door for Michael Edwards to secure a signing at a bargain price and that is just what he did.

Liverpool signed Thiago Alcantara for just £20m plus £5m in bonuses, a steal of a transfer.

Thiago debut

Just two days after signing for the club, Thiago was named in the matchday squad to face Chelsea.

The Reds journeyed to West London to face a side supposedly set to challenge for the title.

However, the visitors won the game without ever getting out of second gear, easing to a 2-0 victory.

Thiago made his Liverpool debut, coming on at halftime with the hosts down to 10 men.

The Spaniard went on to break the record for most successful passes by a player playing 45 minutes or less, completing 75 passes in the second half.

The Spaniard impressed Kopites, his dedication was applauded.

He was deemed ‘worth the saga’, we are all falling in love with him.

RedMenTV pointed out that he’s the second coming of Xabi Alonso.

His ability to slot straight into the side was impressive.

As such, he may not need the same bedding in period as other players.

Let’s all celebrate. Three points and a fantastic Thiago debut.
