What a magnificent time it is to be a Liverpool fan, and it has just got that little bit better.
After what has seemed like an eternity, The Athletic revealed on Thursday morning that a deal had been agreed for Thiago Alcantara to move to Anfield on a deal that is believed to be in the region of £25m.
The report added that this move has no implication on the future of Georginio Wijnaldum, who is believed to be attracting serious interest from Barcelona who is now being managed by his fellow compatriot Ronald Koeman.
By the looks of it, it brings to an end to one of the longest transfer sagas in living memory that we’ve had to go through. We can all breathe a humongous sigh of relief.
Unsurprisingly, fans exploded when Pearce shared the link to The Athletic’s exclusive piece as they made their feelings clear on Twitter.
Here you will find some of the best reactions from Liverpool fans when the news was announced.

Some aimed their praise directly at Pearce himself. The famous saying is ‘don’t blame the messenger’ but it looks like these were thanking him on this occasion…
