Thiago Alcantara has confirmed he will be leaving Bayern Munich by posting an emotional farewell video on social media. The Spaniard has thanked the club for seven beautiful years and he says he has made ‘the hardest decision of his sporting career’. Thiago is expected to sign a multi-year contract with Liverpool on Friday.
“I will close this chapter with this wonderful club where I have grown as a player for seven years”, Thiago said in the video. “Triumphs, joy and also hard times. But what I am most proud of is that I arrived in Munich as a young man full of dreams and now I will leave completely fulfilled with a club, a history and a culture. Thank you Bayern Munich.”
The 29-year-old is expected to confirm his transfer to Liverpool on Friday. He has already agreed personal terms with the Reds and he is expected to sign a three-year deal with the club. Liverpool will pay a reported €30m transfer fee for the midfielder, who had one year left on his contract with Bayern Munich.
