Neville urges Liverpool to sign Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago

Former Manchester United star, Gary Neville, believes Liverpool need to secure Thiago Alcantara.

The Spanish midfielder is being linked with a move to the Reds from Bayern Munich.

But the club are stalling on his fee, as they could sign him on a free transfer next summer.

“To get to a Champions League final, win it the following season, and then to go again to win the Premier League title is a huge emotional drain on that group of Liverpool players for three years,” Neville said on Sky Sports.

“To ask them to go again and achieve that same standard would be a superhuman effort.

“It wouldn’t be ridiculous to suggest there will be a slight drop-off if they don’t somehow stimulate that squad by doing something to give them that lift again.

“Thiago would be the big one. He is world-class and would give them a world-class presence in an area of the field where they don’t have one.”
