BAYERN MUNICH star Thiago Alcantara has agreed personal terms with Liverpool, according to reports.
Negotiations between the two clubs are thought to be at an advanced stage ahead of a £31million transfer.
And according to Tancredi Palmieri, the 29-year-old has now agreed to join the Reds.
Liverpool hope to pay £27m upfront for the Spanish superstar, with another £4m in bonuses to follow.
The midfielder has made 230 appearances for Bayern Munich, since leaving boyhood club Barcelona for Bavaria in 2013.
He has since won seven Bundesliga titles and three DFB Pokals with the German giants.
Thiago looks set to make his last appearance for Bayern this evening, when Hansi Flick’s side take on Bayer Leverkusen in this season’s DFB Pokal final.
The Bundesliga champions became resigned to losing their star No6, when it became apparent that he would not renew his contract beyond the end of next season.
Club chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told Bild this week: “He’s a great guy on and off the pitch.
“We negotiated with him and met all of his wishes.
“But Thiago Alvantara wants to leave.
“It looks like he may want to do something new at the end of his career.
“We don’t want to lose a player for free next year. I say that very clearly.”
Thiago will hope to add major titles in a third country to his CV, having also triumphed in LaLiga with first club Barca.
