Maintaining a level of performance as high as Liverpool had in the 2019/20 season is no easy task. But to stay on top, coach Jurgen Klopp would have already given the Reds’ board a mission: to remove Thiago Alcântara from Bayern Munich.

The information is from the newspaper Bild, from Germany. The vehicle also states that the English club expects to close the deal for 25 million euros, well below the 40 million euros that the Germans expect to receive. As a bet, Liverpool hopes that the current financial crisis, the 29-year-old player, and the length of the contract can make Bayern agree to close the deal for a lower amount.

Thiago Alcântara has been receiving proposals from Bayern Munich for some time to extend his contract, which expires in the middle of 2021. However, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, CEO and chairman of the Bavarian club’s board, has already admitted that the future of the player must actually be in another club.
