Liverpool is currently evaluating their options regarding midfielder Thiago Alcantara, as sources have confirmed
Jurgen Klopp, the manager of the Reds, has consistently voiced his support for Thiago, who made a high-profile move from Bayern Munich to Anfield in 2020.
Nevertheless, Thiago’s time at Liverpool has been plagued by a series of injuries, with only 14 league appearances last season. He has yet to make an appearance this season due to a hip injury sustained in April. Over the summer, there was interest in Thiago from clubs in Turkey and the Saudi Pro League, which tested Liverpool’s determination to keep him.
According to 90min, Thiago expressed his desire to remain at Liverpool and prove himself in the revamped midfield. However, his ongoing injury has made this challenging.
Thiago’s contract expires next summer, and discussions have already begun regarding his future. While Klopp is in favor of extending Thiago’s contract, there are individuals within Anfield who are not entirely convinced that he deserves a new deal.
Klopp spoke highly of Thiago during the summer, emphasizing his unique abilities on the field. Thiago is regarded as a world-class player with exceptional vision and technical skills. Despite his injury, Klopp praised his overall contribution to the team.
Throughout his tenure at Liverpool, Thiago has been one of the highest earners, and the club’s officials are questioning whether they have received sufficient value for their substantial investment.
The club plans to engage in discussions with Thiago and his representatives before January to assess the situation. However, with interest from both Saudi Arabia and Europe, a January transfer remains a distinct possibility, potentially representing Liverpool’s last opportunity to sell him before his contract expires.
