Thiago Alcantara has a close relationship with Pep Guardiola
Sunday, April 15, 2018
Guardiola, who managed Thiago at both Barcelona and Bayern, wants the the 27-year-old to inject some energy into his ageing midfield, with David Silva and Fernandinho in their thirties.
The City boss has said about Silva: â€˜Next season, David maybe will not play every game, thatâ€™s why the squad has to be big.â€™
It wouldn’t be the first time Thiago has followed Guardiola to a new club – he signed for Bayern immediately after Pep’s arrival in 2013.
He is under contract at the German giants until 2021 and is believed to be valued at around Â£50 million.
The Spanish international would be the ideal replacement for his compatriot Silva with his ability to dictate play and chip in with the occasional goal from midfield.
