Liverpool have successfully signed Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich in a deal that could rise to £25m.
Liverpool will pay £20m for the Spain international, with the potential for a further £5m in add-ons, and the midfielder will wear the No 6 jersey.
Thiago moved to UK on Friday morning, flying in to Manchester from Munich to complete a medical and finalize the deal.
The 29-year-old helped Bayern win the treble last season, as they beat Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League final last month in Lisbon.
On leaving the Bundesliga giants, Thiago took to social media to post a goodbye video which said:
“I have made the most difficult decision of my sports career.
“I will close this chapter in this wonderful football club where I have grown as a player for seven years.
“Triumphs, joys and also hard times but what I am most proud of is that I arrived in Munich as a young man full of dreams and now I will leave completely fulfilled with the club, a history and a culture.
“Here I learned to love a tradition that I am now saying goodbye to but which I will never forget.
“My decision is purely a sporting nature as a soccer player, I want new challenges to develop myself further. Bavaria will always be my home, thank you FC Bayern.”
