Liverpool complete signing of Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich

Liverpool have signed Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich in a deal that could rise to £25m.

Liverpool will pay £20m for the Spain international, with the potential for a further £5m in add-ons, and the midfielder will wear the No 6 jersey.

Thiago penned a four-year deal with the Reds and will wear the vacant number 6 shirt.

‘I think it’s an amazing feeling. I was waiting for this moment for a long time and I am very, very happy to be here,” Thiago told Liverpool’s official website.

‘When the years are passing, you are trying to win as much as you can – and when you win, you want to win more. I think this club describes what I am as well; I want to achieve all of the goals, win as many trophies as possible.

‘It also [has] this kind of family [feeling] that I need because we [like to] have a very close relationship with the club and I think I will feel this, I will have this feeling, with this club as well.’

He added: ‘I must adapt to the team as fast as I can in the situation and the context that we are living right now.

‘Everything is more compact and we started a little bit later, but still it is football and I think we have to mix all the big things up, all the good things we have. I will help the team in a defensive and offensive [way] and also in a mental aspect.

‘[The fans] are not more excited than I am, for sure not! It is not about saying words, it is about doing the things. I will give my heart on the field to my teammates, the club and also to the fans.’
