The manager of Bayern Munich, Pep Guardiola, has admitted that he wants to sign Barcelona’s midfielder Thiago Alcantara.

A lot of top clubs including Manchester United and Real Madrid have already been linked with Thiago. Now, Bayern Munich has also joined the race and now, it would be interesting to see where the Italian midfielder prefers to go.

Talking to the reporters yesterday, Guardiola said, “Yes, It’s true that I want to sign Thiago. I have made the board aware of my desire.”

“I have seen Thiago play for Barcelona and I am very impressed with him. He is a class act and he can play in different positions.”

“Yesterday, I had a chat with the chairman and the director and I told them that I wanted to bring Thiago here.”

“He is the only player whom I am interested in. Either I will sign him or there will be no signings this summer.”

“We already have some very good players in the squad, but, you want a couple of impact players there who can turn the match on their own. I think Thiago is one of those players.”

There are already quite a few midfielders in the Munich squad. Arjen Robben, Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller, all of them are quality midfielders.

When asked if adding another midfielder to the squad is a real necessity for Munich at the moment, Guardiola said, “As I said the impact players always make difference and Thiago is one such player in my opinion. I have told the board everything. Now, it’s up to them to take a decision.”

According to the reports, the transfer fee that Barcelona is expected to demand for Thiago is 26 million US Dollars. The 22 years old Italian midfielder still has a couple of years left in his contract with Barcelona.
