Liverpool are set to announce the signing of Thiago Alcantara in the coming days, with a transfer fee now agreed with Bayern Munich for the midfielder.

It seems some enthusiastic Reds on Reddit were ahead of the curve, though – as u/e2828 shared a picture of a flight from Munich to Liverpool yesterday.

If it turns out the flight tracked is in fact one Thiago took, then that’s some serious investigating!
