Bayern Munich completes agreement with Barcelona to sign Thiago Alcantara

hi-res-170804940_crop_northBayern Munich have completed an agreement with Barcelona to sign ThiagoAlcantara, the club confirmed on its Twitter account.

AS is reporting that the deal is for €25 million and includes a clause that the two clubs will take place in a friendly.

Thiago had spent his entire senior career with Barcelona. He appeared in just over 100 matches for the club since his debut in 2008. His quest for more consistent first-team football led him to test the transfer waters and a deal with Bayern.

The 22-year-old Spanish international is coming off a strong display of form in the European Under-21 Championship. He helped lead the football powerhouse to its fourth title in the event, notably scoring a hat trick in the final triumph over Italy.

Although it served as a breakout tournament for Thiago, his immense upside was known well before he led Spain to another trophy. He’s long been viewed as a midfielder with the potential to become one of the best in the world.

He combines terrific vision with improved playmaking skills and good pace to create an ideal central midfielder. A player doesn’t start his career with Barcelona and follow it with a move to Bayern Munich unless his skill set is through the roof. Thiago certainly fits the bill.
