Thiago Alcantara is a top transfer target for Barcelona this summer

Thiago has shown that he has the quality to be considered as one of the best midfielders in the world during him time in Bavaria with German giants Bayern.

The former Barca superstar has made a total of 153 appearances for the German champions since he arrived in 2013, with the player managing to score 25 and assist 27 in that time frame as well.

If Barca are serious about securing a return to the club for Thiago, it may be worth Ernesto Valverde’s side forking out the required €70M, as there won’t be many players of the same ilk available for a price like that.
