La Liga side contact Liverpool midfielder ahead of potential summer move

Girona assure that they will play in the Champions League next season, and as such have started looking at ways to build out their squad in the summer. One of their targets could be Liverpool’s Thiago Alcantara.

After four injury-hit years at Liverpool, Thiago’s deal will not be renewed, and Relevo say that Girona have been in touch with his agent to find out whether he would be open to the move. The 33-year-old is open to the idea, after 11 years away from Catalonia where he grew up. His partner Julia Vigas would be keen on a return, and the pair tend to holiday on the coast near Girona.

Els Blanc-i-Vermells are yet to make any decisions, but if he can stay fit, he would provide experience, quality and a skillset that could replace Aleix Garcia, who could well leave this summer. The main stumbling block would be his €10m annual salary, which Thiago would have to slash in order to make a deal happen.

Stylistically, it seems a perfect fit, and Michel Sanchez has shown his ability to get the best out of technically gifted midfielders. Nevertheless, his salary means he would likely have to be a central part of their side next season, and combined with his fitness issues, it could be something of a risk for Girona. Champions League experience will also be invaluable next season though, and Thiago has plenty of it.
