Juventus and Inter Milan are competing to recruit Thiago Alcantara. The Spanish international is said to be ready to try his hand at the Serie A playground. If he accepts the offer to Juventus or Inter, Thiago will play in four different national leagues during his career, including Spain, Germany, and England. and Italy.
However, La Gazzetta dello Sport said that the chance for the two Serie A “giants” to get the signature of the Liverpool midfielder is not high. The problem lies in Thiago’s salary.
The former Barcelona player is currently receiving a salary of £225,000/week. This amount affects the salary budget of Juventus and Inter Milan.
Inter is willing to sign a 2-year contract with Thiago only if he accepts a salary reduction. Meanwhile, Juventus representatives also find it difficult to accept a salary of more than £200,000 for a player about to turn 33 years old.
Due to injury, Thiago Alcantara has not yet appeared for Liverpool this season. The last time he fought with his teammates took place on April 26, in the confrontation with West Ham.
Thiago is the only player among the experienced midfielders of the “Red Brigade” who still remains at Anfield. Previously, veterans such as Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, James Milner and Naby Keita all said goodbye to the club.
