The Liverpool Exodus

In a surprising turn of events, Thiago Alcantara, the Spanish midfield maestro, is reportedly seeking an early exit from Liverpool, a year ahead of his contract’s conclusion. The Merseyside club has already bid farewell to James Milner, Naby Keita, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, all of whom were released as their contracts expired at the end of the previous season. Arthur Melo, following an unremarkable loan spell, has returned to Juventus, while Fabio Carvalho has been loaned to RB Leipzig.

The Next in Line

The midfield exodus seems far from over, with Jordan Henderson and Fabinho potentially heading to Saudi Arabian clubs Al Ettifaq and Al Ittihad respectively. The latest revelation, however, has been the most shocking, with Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager, learning of Thiago’s desire to leave.

Thiago’s Liverpool Journey

Thiago, who joined Liverpool from Bayern Munich in 2020, has had a challenging stint at Anfield, marred by injuries. Despite this, Klopp continues to hold the 32-year-old in high regard. However, with Liverpool’s midfield undergoing a significant transformation, Thiago appears ready to part ways.

New Additions and Potential Departures

Liverpool has already bolstered their squad with the additions of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai, and they are likely to target another midfielder once Fabinho and Henderson depart. Thiago, wary of the potential decrease in playing time, has decided it might be best to seek opportunities elsewhere.

The Spanish Connection

Thiago, a product of Barcelona’s famed academy and a former first-team player, had hoped that the departure of Sergio Busquets might pave the way for his return. However, Barcelona’s decision to bring back Oriol Romeu from Girona has complicated matters. As a result, Thiago is now waiting to see if Real Sociedad, Celta de Vigo, or Sevilla will solidify their interest.

The Champions League Dream

A move to Real Sociedad or Sevilla would offer Thiago the opportunity to compete in the Champions League next season, a prospect not available at Liverpool, who will be competing in the Europa League. Celta, on the other hand, has no European football to offer.

The Future of Thiago

While Galatasaray has expressed interest in Thiago, he has put the idea of moving to Turkey on hold, waiting to see if a move to Spain materialises. With Liverpool yet to discuss a new contract, it seems increasingly likely that Thiago’s time at Anfield is drawing to a close. This summer might be Liverpool’s last chance to cash in on their number six, or they could keep him for one last season before letting him go for free.

    Thiago was waste of space and wages
    More injured than Kieta
    Gives the ball away more than half the time

    Unfortunately he will not leave as no club is stupid enough to pay his £250 a week wage

    I was hoping Saudi league would take him and LFC could get maybe £12 million for him

    This is where I think Kopp is wrong or stuck in his view of Thiago from Barca and Bayern days

    Liverpool will only go backwards with him

    I hope
    He leaves , I do not think I have disliked two players more Thiago and Kieta

    Agreed that Thiago has been injured more times than he’s been fit and as such has weakened Liverpool, I’d like to see him go for a fee no matter how much it is because we lose that £250k/week on a high wage bill. I think people who say that we should keep him are looking at how good he was and not how good he is, just check his Goal contributions over the past few years and that becomes evident.

    I agree with the injury record having spent more time in treatment than on the pitch,but we can’t deny the quality he brings when fit and on his game and he may help with the younger ones as hendo,milner and chamberlain all gone who no doubt helped the youth and fringe players in terms of advice on and off the pitch,thiago is a proper pro who has looked after himself and is a guide of how to apply yourself and prolong careers,a shame he hasn’t played as much as I hoped but shows his ability in flashes when playing and wish we had him earlier and in his prime as he is one of the greats of the game who has won the lot,his experience could still serve us well for the last year of his contract and hope he can get another payday when he leaves us to set him up for life after football if he hasn’t already put his nest egg aside,and if he is as clever off the pitch as on it then he will be ok for life,and maybe become the next pep in years to come.whichever way his story goes I wish him all the best and thank him for his limited contributions so far.ynwa

    Difference with thiago and keita was thiago was a free transfer but his wages would be better served going to other players or areas needed and keita was the biggest waste of money,time and effort getting him fit since Andy Carroll so I am glad we have had a clean out and refresh..but as deadline day creeps ever closer to 11pm tonight,what are thoughts on the ongoing salah situation that won’t stop until next week when Saudi window closes,do we cash in and reinvest with a quick deal for a target already in our sights and use what forward players we already have and in my opinion more than capable of covering the loss of salah or keep him and have a deal in place for the next window when we have more time to reinvest properly as at 31 and with 2 years left of his contract we could buy a few players with the daft figures generated from his sale and with 1 5 million a week on the table is his head going to be turned enough to force through a move and move on.. what are peoples thoughts,views or opinions on this???
