Thiago Alcantara has reportedly agreed personal terms on a four-year contract to join Liverpool.
The Bayern Munich midfielder clearly expects this transfer to go through as he has supposedly said goodbye to his team-mates at the Allianz Arena and found a new house in Liverpool.

Alcantara could be a superb signing for Liverpool, who could perhaps do with a little more craft and creativity in the middle of the park next season.
The Reds ran away with the Premier League title in 2019/20, but there’s no doubt Alcantara could add a new dimension to their game, giving them the kind of spark that players like Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Georginio Wijnaldum lack.
The Spain international has been a huge success in his time in the Bundesliga and surely has what it takes to work his magic in the Premier League as well.
Bayern boss Hansi Flick has previously suggested Alcantara looked set to end his career in Germany for a move to England.
“As a person and as an athlete, I can understand him,” Flick recently told German outlet Sport Bild, as translated by the Metro.
“Thiago played for Barcelona, and seven years for Bayern. Now he wants a new challenge, which in my opinion must be the Premier League.”
