Thiago Alcantara 'agrees terms with Liverpool' in £27m transfer from Bayern Munich as Spanish star gets extended break

THIAGO ALCANTARA has reportedly agreed personal terms with Liverpool.

The Bayern Munich midfielder is currently enjoying an extended break following his Spain commitments in the Nations League.

The 29-year-old is spending time with his family on holiday in Barcelona – with the Nou Camp outfit also interested in resigning Thiago permanently.

Yet according to BILD, the Spaniard is desperate to seal a move to Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool and personal terms have been agreed.

The report states however that the Reds are still yet to agree a transfer fee, with Bayern holding out for around £27.5million.

The German outlet also claims Thiago, who is not expected to report for training until next week, is keen to resolve his future as soon as possible.

His Bayern colleagues were already pictured back in Bavaria on Tuesday, including new signing Leroy Sane.

Thiago meanwhile still has 12 months left on his deal but has expressed his desire to leave the Bundesliga champions this summer – and they have even recommended that he move to the Premier League.

This has led Manchester United to emerge as another potential destination for the Spanish International.

It is thought that Liverpool are waiting to resolve the future of Georginio Wijnaldum before deciding whether to make a move for Thiago.

The Netherlands international has less than a year remaining on his Reds contract and could leave on a free transfer next summer.

The 29-year-old has reportedly agreed a three-year deal to join Barcelona, who are hoping to pay Liverpool around £18million.

New Barca boss Ronald Koeman built a good relationship with Wijnaldum when he was manager of the Dutch national team.
