Thiago Alcantara, the Liverpool midfielder, appears set to leave the club at the end of his current contract
Thiago Alcantara is expected to be released by Liverpool at the end of his current contract.
After winning the Champions League with Bayern Munich and playing in the final against Paris Saint-Germain, the Spaniard moved to Merseyside in 2020. Since then, the No.6 has helped the Reds win the FA Cup and League Cup.
Thiago, on the other hand, has struggled with fitness during his three years in English football, appearing in only 24 and 25 matches in his first two seasons. Jurgen Klopp has targeted Jude Bellingham as a serious upgrade to his midfield options, with two plyers expected this summer.
Thiago will be allowed to leave the club at the end of his current contract, according to The Mirror(opens in new tab).
The Italian-born maestro is under contract for another year, but he recently turned 32. The Reds are likely to consider any offer, but they may be willing to let him go on a free transfer if finances become an issue.
The Merseysiders have had to put their pursuit of Bellingham on hold because they do not have the funds to spend on a £100 million player if they do not qualify for the Champions League this season.
Similarly, if Thiago could find a way to get his wages off the books ahead of a rebuild, Klopp is likely to let the player leave without a fee.
This summer, Liverpool are expected to sign full-backs and center-backs, as well as two midfielders.
Transfermarkt values Thiago at €18 million (opens in new tab).
