Everyone knows that injuries are part of the game. Whenever a player is signed, there is always the risk that they will get injured and be out of action for a long period of time. However, there are players who are more prone to injury than others, and it's those kinds of players who become a real nightmare for teams and Liverpool have experienced what that's like in recent years.

 

In 2020, the Reds signed what they thought could be Steven Gerrard's heir, as he was one of the best midfielders in the world at the time and also one of the most talented players in the world. We are talking about Thiago Alcantara, who came to be compared to the Liverpool legend when he signed for the team in 2020 from FC Bayern where he had won a Champions League.

However, despite his undeniable talent, Thiago was unable to show his great qualities on a consistent basis at Anfield, as injuries prevented him from playing for a long time due to various injuries. Still, when he was fit, Thiago was one of Jürgen Klopp's favorites, but everything seems to indicate that his time at Liverpool could be coming to an end.

In recent days rumors have circulated about a possible departure of Thiago, to which the Liverpool board would not oppose and would even facilitate negotiations with the club that wants to sign him, but it would be Thiago himself who would aim to stay at Anfield until the end of his contract next year. However, an offer from the powerful Saudi Arabian league could change his mind.

 

Thiago to Saudi Arabia?

According to various media reports, the Saudi Pro League would be looking to convince Thiago Alcantara to emigrate to the exotic, and according to journalist Chris Bascombe, the Liverpool board would be willing to get rid of Thiago to make room for new signings.
