Barcelona could have reunited with their former midfielder Thiago Alcantara.

More of Everything Barca
Thiago would have been a great addition to Barcelona’s current midfield as it isn’t exactly the best in the world yet. After this terrible and trophyless season, a familiar face like Thiago at Nou Camp would be a relief.
However, the former Borussia Dortmund coach had other plans when he landed the 29-year-old midfielder in just under 30 million.
The former Barcelona midfielder wanted to join Liverpool as he made him a very good offer. The player is fresh from a triple season with Hansi Flick’s Bayern.
A seasoned player like Thiago, who has 7 successful seasons with the German champions, is a fantastic addition to this already strong Premier League squad. This transfer gave Jürgen Klopp the depth of the squad and a little creativity in midfield that he has longed for for some time.
However, the fighting Spanish giants also oversaw the 29-year-old’s transfer as his selling price wasn’t that high. They wanted to bring the La Masia graduate home for a permanent contract. However, the Champions League winner had a better offer from England when he joined Jurgen Klopp and his men on a Premier League quest.
Thiago played the second half of the game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, breaking the record for the most passes in a single half. This is a top notch display for its debut and it looks like Alcantara is serious. At this point, nobody is going to argue that moving to Anfield is clearly a better choice in the current situation. However, the Blaugrana are building their squad from scratch and hope to be back soon.
