EXCLUSIVE: Liverpool open talks over shock deal

According to sources cited by Football Insider, Liverpool and Thiago Alcantara have begun talking about the player’s future with the team.

His contract at Anfield is slated to expire at the end of the current campaign, thus the parties are now in negotiations.

Negotiations regarding a renewal, nevertheless, are reportedly still in their early stages with Thiago’s agents.

Before making an offer to the 32-year-old Spaniard, Liverpool wants to see an improvement in the player’s availability and track record of appearances.

During the summer transfer window, the midfielder was frequently connected with Turkish and Saudi Arabian teams, but no deal materialized in time.

Thiago’s contract with Liverpool was not terminated, as Football Insider reported earlier this month (on September 14), preventing him from making a last-minute move to Turkey.

During the summer transfer window, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho both obtained lucrative deals to Saudi Arabia.

Thiago’s Liverpool career is still plagued by injury issues, so he might yet join the ex-Reds duo.

Due to a hip issue, the former Bayern Munich midfielder is yet to play in the 2023–24 season.

He joined the Merseysiders in 2021, but has made just 97 appearances while wearing a Liverpool jersey because of fitness issues.

Last season, Thiago made 28 appearances in all competitions, but he only started in 21 of them.
