News had broken on Thursday that the two clubs, who have won six Champions League titles each, agreed on a £25 million deal, which is understood to be broken down into a £20 million payment with an extra £5 million in potential add-ons.
The 29-year-old, who is the son of Brazilian World Cup winner Mazinho, has agreed personal terms with the Merseyside club which will see him wear the number 6 at Anfield, the same jersey he wore while at the German giants.
Thiago was instrumental in Bayern’s treble-winning season last year, consisting of UEFA Champions League glory as well Bundesliga and DFB Pokal success, alongside former Liverpool man Philippe Coutinho.
