After weeks of speculations and questions about where Thiago would ply his trade this season, the question was finally answered as Liverpool completed a deal with Bayern Munich.
In his first interview with Liverpool, he said “It’s an amazing feeling. I was waiting for this moment for a long time and I am very happy to be here,”.
Thiago will wear the number six shirt at Anfield and becomes the club’s second summer signing after Greece left-back Kostas Tsimikas.
He won La Liga twice with Barcelona before a 2013 move to Bayern, where he won the Bundesliga seven times and the Champions League in August.
His arrival at Anfield ends weeks of speculation about whether the Premier League champions would make a stand-out summer signing.
The £20m fee will be paid in instalments over the length of Thiago’s deal, and up to an additional £5m will be paid based on the Reds’ success in the Premier League and Champions League.
