Lionel Messi is reportedly asking for Barcelona
to make a move for talented Bayern Munich
ace Thiago, beating Real Madrid to the signing
of the player in the process.
Don Balon are stating that the Argentine superstar
has suggested to club president Josep Maria
Bartomeu that they make a move to bring Thiago
back to the Camp Nou, and that the player
is also a target for Real Madrid.
The news outlet are also stating that the
player has been put up for sale by Bayern
Munich, something that could make this signing
one of Barcelona’s easiest in recent years,
should they listen to Messi and make a move
for the midfielder.
Since emerging into the scene for Ernesto
Valverde’s side a number of years ago, Thiago
has since managed to establish himself as
one of the best midfielders on the planet.
There aren’t many players that can match
the player’s high level of composure and
ability on and off the ball, something that
has seen him slot into both Barca and Bayern’s
sides with ease.
If Bayern are to let go of Thiago, it remains
to be seen as to whether Barca or Madrid will
be each other in the race for the player and
land one of the most technically-brilliant
players on the planet.
