Spain midfielder Thiago Alcantara is on the verge of joining Premier League champions Liverpool after stalling over signing a contract extension at Bayern Munich, according to a report in Bild on Friday.
The paper claims Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp wants to sign the playmaker who helped Munich win the Bundesliga title and German Cup double last season, but the clubs have yet to agree on a transfer fee.
According to Bild, Liverpool are not willing to pay more than 25 million euros ($28.5 million), while Bayern wants around 40 million euros for the 29-year-old.
Earlier this week, there were widespread reports that Alcantara’s house in Munich is already up for sale. (Punch)
