BAYERN MUNICH GUARDIOLA CONVINCES FC BARCELONA THIAGO ALCANTARA

The voted MVP of the last UEFA U-21 European Championships, FC Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara, has a "bargain basement" contract release clause of "only" 18M€. That figure climbs back up to 90M€ on the 1st of August, thus the big European Clubs are talking with the player in an attempt to convince him to sign with them.

Everything was pointing towards English Premier League Club Manchester United. In fact , Football observers had commented that there was a "verbal agreement" & that the inner circle of the player had made comments that it was a done deal.

However, a new & influential actor has come into the scene. The ex-Coach of Thiago at FC Barcelona Josep Guardiola, has announced that he has expressed to his Club, Bayern Munich, to move to sign the talented midfielder. A mini-bombshell that has changed the plans of Thiago & has brought some "bad vibes" over to Camp Barça. In fact, Guardiola was more explicit in today's press conference saying that Thiago is a "super player" & that he would be his only signing request.

Spanish radio last night already gave glimpses of this news, with information that Guardiola had called Thiago & had convinced the player. The offer would be 4M€ per season & Thiago voiced his concern about the current midfielders at Bayern & if he could find a place. Guardiola is said to have commented that Javi Martinez will had a defensive ( central defender ) role & thus open up a midfield space for him.

Thus , at this moment, things look like Thaigo will head off to Bayern Munich. Stay tuned!
