#Football: Liverpool Completes Thiago Signing, Strengthens Midfield

By Chukwuka Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Liverpool completed the signing of Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich on Friday, bringing in one of the world’s most technically gifted players to add another dimension to the English champions’ midfield.

The 29-year-old Thiago ended his seven-year spell at Bayern by moving for an initial fee of 20 million pounds ($26 million), with a potential additional 5 million pounds ($6.5 million) later. “A player like Thiago — settled that much at Bayern — is usually out of reach for pretty much everybody,” Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp said.

At Liverpool, he will add a more creative edge — nurtured at Barcelona’s famed La Masia academy — to a midfield that currently is more notable for its energy and intensity through hard-running players like Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner.
