The Numbers Behind Thiago's Transfer To Liverpool Will Go Down As One Of The Greatest Bargains Ever

 The Numbers Behind Thiago's Transfer To Liverpool Will Go Down As One Of The Greatest Bargains Ever

The numbers behind Thiago's summer transfer to Liverpool have been broken down and it proves their waiting paid off.

It was announced on Thursday that the Premier League champions had agreed a deal with Bayern Munich to end one of the summer's longest sagas.

He'll move to Anfield for an initial £20 million and upon further inspection, Jurgen Klopp's side may have got an absolute bargain.

The 29-year-old has signed a four-year deal and the transfer fee will be paid over all four years, meaning an outlay of just £5 million this summer per The Mirror.

An additional £6 million will be paid should The Reds win the Premier League and Champions League in the next few years, with Thiago playing a key role.

Other potential triggers include if he wins individual awards such as the Ballon d'Or.

He has been vocal in wanting a new challenge after spending seven years with Bayern and winning the treble last season.

Former Bayern president Uli Hoeness revealed earlier this month that Thiago "probably" agreed personal terms with Liverpool a while back, while Manchester United were also interested.

"We offered him [Thiago] a great four-year contract but in the last minute he changed his mind and told us he wants a new challenge. He probably has an agreement with Liverpool or Manchester United, or with both," Hoesness told Sport1, via @iMiaSanMia.

Thiago will become Liverpool's second signing of the summer after the capture of Kostas Tsimikas last month.
