On the downside? He's just won the Champions League and was their best player in all of the clutch games! That's something our best player Kevin De Bruyne has never done.Clue: Thiago is on the downside of his career, plays in a high energy team which covers for him, has a record of injuries & would be ANOTHER player similar to the ones we already have for the position, except they are already PL players & he isn't.
It would be a pathetic, unimaginative, short term patchup job, taking a squad place from s younger player & the exact thing Pellegrini would do, if allowed, then fuck off & leave us with the shell, whilst other teams get younger & fitter.
Fucking dreadful idea.
I like Gundogan despite the abuse he gets on here, I think he's criticised because of the way Pep plays him and not because of the quality he has.
Lionel Messi is 4 years older, and you're saying that he'd be a patch up Job as well? Thiago could play for another 5 seasons at the highest level. If Liverpool sign him, I guarantee I'll be back on here to tell you that you've eaten your words.
If we can get Aouar I would go for him, but Thiago being available at 27m really is a no lose situation.
