Barcelona tried to sign Tiago back before the transfer deadline, but the player himself was not interested in Barcelona.
The 29-year-old Thiago ended his seven years at Bayern Munich and joined Liverpool for £25 million. However, according to the Guardian, Barcelona tried to cut the deal at the last moment. They played their emotional card to persuade Thia. Ge returned to Camp Nou, but the player refused.
The Guardian said that when Barcelona shot, Thiago had already decided to switch to Liverpool, and Klopp’s video exchange with him made him excited about the new challenge at Anfield.
From 2009 to 2013, Thiago played 100 times for the Barcelona first team and won various honors such as La Liga, the Champions League, and the Copa del Rey.
