Former Bayern star: ‘Thiago would be a perfect fit for Liverpool & Klopp’

Thiago Alcantara would be a perfect fit for Liverpool says former Bayern Munich star Lothar Matthaus. The former German 1990 world champion would be a perfect fit for any team that is being coached by Jurgen Klopp. Liverpool is one of the clubs who are interested in signing Thiago this summer.

Bayern signed Thiago in 2013 from FC Barcelona and the midfielder has made a total of 231 appearances for the German giants, while he developed into one of the best playmaking midfielders in Europe. With his current deal running down into its final year, Thiago has expressed the desire to change his scenery.

The Spanish midfielder wants a new adventure and Bayern have already confirmed that the midfielder will be allowed to leave if an interested club will meet their demands. Bayern are demanding a fee around €40m, a price that Liverpool would be prepared to meet if they decide to make an official approach.

Matthaus hopes Liverpool does make a move. “With Thiago, I’m pretty sure the signs are goodbye,” the 59-year-old told Sport Buzzer. “What other reason would he have for not yet accepting Bayern’s offer? Liverpool are obviously very keen on him and he would absolutely love the football, the team and fit perfectly with Jurgen Klopp.”
