Liverpool have completed the signing of midfielder Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich for £25-million on a four-year contract.
“Liverpool FC have completed a deal for the permanent transfer of Thiago Alcantara from FC Bayern Munich,” read a statement on the club’s website.
“The Spain international midfielder has put pen to paper on a long-term contract with the Reds and becomes the club’s second signing of the transfer window, following Kostas Tsimikas in August.”
“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,” Alcantara said.
“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.”
