Spanish radio station Cadena Cope has stated that Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara will sign for Champions League winner, Pep Guardiola´s Bayern Munich and the deal could be announced this Thursday.
Thiago Alcantara is slowly turning into the one of the biggest stars of the transfer window. Young Barcelona midfielder protested because of a lack of first team football. Clearly he could not get more playing time next to Xavi, Iniesta and Fabregas, and he doesn’t want to wait more for this to happen.
Manchester United is trying to land Alcantara at the Old Trafford . Man Utd must find a playmaker and Thiago would have a certain place in the first eleven, but according to Cadena Cope ( the same which break the news of Neymar´s deal with Barca) , it will not be Thiago Alcantara.
“The bid from Real Madrid was rejected because Thiago does not want to close any doors on a return to Barca in the future.”
With an offers of Bayern Munich and Manchester United, Thiago decided to go to Bayern after he received a call from Pep Guardiola, who assured him of playing in the first eleven.
“Thiago knew that there were several players in his position, but was told by Pep Guardiola on the phone that he was moving Javi Martinez to centre back as Marcelo Bielsa did with him at Athletic Bilbao.”
The deal might be done very soon. Still, to be a little sceptical with this Thiago choice, it would be a normal thing, considering that in Manchester United, Thiago wouldn’t have any competition.
