On the brink of greatness: Thiago Alcântara. (/
Please go and pay €200m and bring Thiago Alcantara back. This is worth the risk than €160m Coutinho.
He's not displacing, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Can or Milner. They're all proper Klopp players. Ox is an extreme povert…
160 million euros for Coutinho! I've said it before, and I'll say it again, give me Thiago Alcantara for that price.
Barca were so dominant a couple of years back that Thiago Alcantara, Fabregas Sanchez and Pedro were deemed surplus. Bro!

Thiago alcantara is hair to toes, miles better than ivan rakitic. One of the top 5 CMs in world football currently.
We could possibly get Thiago Alcantara for around £40m. A much better player than Jack Wilshere who would probably cost more than £40m.
17. Thiago Alcantara. A look is just enough 😍
Bayern's current midfield options include Vidal, Thiago Alcantara and Sanches - serious interest in all 3 over past 2 years, we signed none.

BAAAB Here's some more bad news on the injury front for all Bayern Munich fans. Arjen Robben missed Sunday's training is unlikely to play in Wednesday's Champions League match against Manchester City. Yes, it appears he will be joining the long list of Bayern players that are unavailable for the match. Robben is still suffering from a knee injury that has been bugging him since after the Wolfsburg match. In addition to Robben, Bayern will definitely be without Holger Badstuber , Bastian Schweinsteiger, Thiago Alcantara, Rafinha, and Javi Martinez. Though, we do have an update that Thiago, Rafinha, and Mitchell Weiser engaged in individual rehab sessions on the field on Sunday.

Hes fast, creative and has skill moves. I would say Konoplyanka from Ukraine or Thiago Alcantara of bayern. Hes unique though
I'm half watching it, and half writing for about Rivaldo, Thiago Alcantara, Blerim Dzemaili and Juan Iturbe
Its a trademark for United, every trasnfer window there's always a false saga, last year it was Thiago Alcantãra, this year its Vidal.
Won't get myself attached to the Arturo Vidal rumours..those episodes with fabregas and thiago alcantara were jx painful
Thiago Alcantara is so overrated. Really good player but the opinion some people have on him, he's not better than Isco or Götze

Thiago Alcântara with a stunning volley finish!...
that's where future Barca and the previous incarnation disappear on diverging paths. From a club drilled on the philosophy of La Masia, developing their own prodigious talents to supplement superstar signings, they now appear more keen to follow the Real Madrid doctrine. Buy world stars, and ask questions later. Suarez wasn't necessary, in the same way that James Rodriguez wasn't necessary for Madrid. But the precedent appears to have been set. Neymar, Messi, Suarez... and whoever else we have left. Cesc Fabregas, Thiago Alcantara, Victor Valdes, Carles Puyol - the Catalan heart of the team has dispersed. Xavi, an ageing legend, looks to be retained. At every turn, logic and long-term consideration seem inconsequential. Will it still be Barcelona ??
The way we watched out for Giovanni Dos Santos, Thiago Alcantara & Bojan Krkic? "Watch out for them
Certain things about Man U are heart breaking. Lets look at their transfer policy. Good players are trailed and abandoned to the heart break of many fans. The cases of Thiago Alcantara and Toni Kroos readily comes to mind. Now is Arturo Vidal whom the club is considering too expensive when they have the worst midfield in the premiership. Dont know whether millions got from several mega sponsorship deals will ever who them a trophy. Buh!
Yes'm but he could be even better. Dude Isco, Jese, Thiago Alcantara, Morata, De Gea can all play next WC. That's squad already.
...for Bernat. Having fellow countrymen in the form of Thiago Alcantara and Javi Martinez alongside him will also help his development.
according to the media Man UTD signed Lucas Moura, Ezekial Garay, Thiago Alcantara, Toni Kroos, Mario Goetze, Mats Hummels, Fabregas, Sniejder, Herrera.name them. Suprisingly some fans keep falling for this. Smh. Someone is called Opana cos of such swerves. U just dn't learn. I say wait la. Let the club announce n see the player with pen in hand, contract on table, jersey by his side, a calander showing the exact date n a big Fergie watch showing the time. Then u can bliv.
The end of an era is when you have to replace Roy Keane with Keith Andrews, not Xavi with Thiago Alcantara.
In Spain they are talking about a revolution, in broader terms- the death of Tiki-taka. As Xavi declines , so does the Orchestra in which he became a leader of. What does this mean?... Barcelona have parted ways with Xavi Hernandez and Fransesc Fabregas...Xabi Alonso, Xavi Hernandez and David Villa will all retire from international football after the World Cup. The next generation Spanish team will comprise of these names: David De Gea, Martin Montoya, Inigo Martinez,Jesse, Alvaro Morata, Koke, Thiago Alcantara, Illarimendi, Iker Muniain, Ander Harerra, Iba, De Marcos, Gerrard Delafeau, Isaac Cuenca etc. Interesting times ahead.
Looks like its the end of the Spanish golden generation. But the future is good w/ Iker Muniain , Thiago Alcantara , Jese Rodriguez, De Gea
where's Thiago Alcantara? Or Iker Muniaín? Aren't they the future? Was a big fan of Thiago at Barcelona
WORLD CUP Absentees Football fans have been robbed of too many classy players ahead of this world cup; mostly due to injuries and some who's countries didn't manage to qualify and then in bizarre occasions like some coaches dropping players who looked like a sure bet. Players absent due to Injuries Radamel Falcao (Colombia); Marco Reus, İlkay Gündoğan, Lars Bender (GER); Victor Valdes, Thiago Alcantara (ESP); Kevin Strootman, Van der Vaart, Van der weil (NED); Frank Ribéry, Clement Grenier (FRA); Theo Walcott, Kyle Walker, Andros Townsend (ENG), Riccardo Montolivo (ITA); and then for the "minnows" Costa Rica they won't have Bryan Oceido and Alvaro Saborio. Then there's the players who might still appear, but aren't fully fit. Like Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo and Pepe, Uruguay's Luis Suarez, Germany's Manuel Neuer, Spain's Diego Costa and England's Alex Oxlade- Chamberlain. * Here, players who were wittingly dropped by their coaches. Samir Nasri (FRA), Landon Donovan (USA), Ik Uche (NGA), Willy Cabal ...

Confirmed Spain 23man Squad for Brazil. Surprise, surprise... Nando makes the cut. Vincent Del Bosque has whittled his initial 30 man Spain World Cup squad down to the final 23, cutting seven players from his initial squad. Injury robbed the Spain boss of Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara, but an embarrassment of riches across the park means that the squad contains some notable omissions. Manchester City pair Jesus Navas and Alvaro Negredo both miss out, with the latter being omitted in favour of Chelsea forward Fernando Torres. At the back, Del Bosque has kept all four of his initial centre backs, but has cut two of his full backs. Liverpool target Alberto Moreno and Real Madrid full back Daniel Carvajal have both been dropped from the initial squad, with Cesar Azpilicueta staying in as cover for both full back positions. In midfield, Navas and Thiago are joined on the plane home by Bilbao’s Ander Iturraspe, while Premier League trio David Silva, Juan Mata and Santi Cazorla have all made the cu ...
Alberto Moreno, Iturraspe, Deulofeu, Negredo, Thiago Alcantara (injured) & Jesus Navas will not feature in the World Cup. Del Bosque now have to choose between Carvajal / Juanfran & Diego Costa / Llorente.
WORLD CUP: Missing in action A host of big names will miss the World Cup after succumbing to injury in the weeks leading up to the tournament. Croatia's Niko Kranjcar paid the price for his exertions in QPR's Championship play-off final victory over Derby as he picked up a hamstring injury which will leave him on the treatment table for much of the summer. Netherlands have been hit the hardest of all the teams in Brazil, with Rafael van der Vaart ruled out with a calf injury and joining Paris Saint-Germain right-back Gregory van der Wiel and Roma's Kevin Strootman (both knee) on the sidelines. Victor Valdes tore his anterior cruciate ligament in what proved to be his last game for Barcelona against Celta Vigo in March and Spain will also be without Thiago Alcantara after the Bayern Munich man underwent surgery on a knee ligament problem. England have already been robbed of the services of Arsenal winger Theo Walcott. The fleet-footed wideman ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament during an FA Cup clash w ...
Manchester United have been afforded a massive boost to their transfer plans for the summer, as it’s been revealed that Pep Guardiola is willing to listen to offers for Bastian Schweinsteiger. Recent reports have suggested that the Germany international, who has enjoyed a long and successful career at the Allianz Arena, has been earmarked as Louis van Gaal’s top target, and that the Dutchman wants him over a number of other midfielders. And now, courtesy of the Express, it’s believed that £10million may be enough to land the 29-year-old, as Guardiola doesn’t consider him to rank amongst Bayern Munich’s key players. Whilst Van Gaal would look to make Schweinsteiger an essential component in his new-look United side, Guardiola is keen to given Thiago Alcantara plenty of game-time next season, and so is willing to shift his vice-captain to make room. As such he will listen to United’s offer - should they choose to lodge a formal bid - and give his consent to the sale providing he deems it suitab ...

Bayern Munich 3-1 Manchester United: Guardiola uses his full-backs in midfield, but Bayern better with a standard system April 10, 2014 The starting line-ups Pep Guardiola played an unusual system, but it didn’t help Bayern break down Manchester United. Guardiola fielded Toni Kroos in the pivot role, with Thomas Muller in midfield and Mario Mandzukic returning upfront. David Moyes brought Shinji Kagawa and Darren Fletcher into his midfield, and recalled Patrice Evra and Chris Smalling at the back. The pattern of the game wasn’t significantly different from the first leg, and the major talking point was Guardiola’s use of his two full-backs. Lahm plays two positions It was surprising that Lahm was seemingly deployed as a right-back, considering Guardiola was without both Thiago Alcantara and Bastian Schweinsteiger from his midfield zone, and therefore Lahm was surely required in the holding role he’s occupied for most of this season. However, moving Lahm to right-back also made sense considering Ma ...

But experienced left-back Patrice Evra has indicated he expects to be fit enough to return to the side after missing the first leg through suspension and despite struggling with a knee problem.

WILL THESE INJURIES HELP Manchester United SUCCEED ??? A great news for Manchester United ahead of Bayern Munich clash on wednesday. Bayern Munich have suffered another dent to their depleted midfield reserves with the news that Xherdan Shaqiri has torn a thigh muscle. Shaqiri was substituted at half-time as Bayern suffered a 1-0 defeat at Augsburg on Saturday, a result which ended a 53-game unbeaten run in the Bundesliga for Pep Guardiola's men. The Bavarian club have now confirmed that Shaqiri will be unavailable for Wednesday's UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg with Manchester United after tearing a muscle in his right thigh.

Ozil must up his game 12 March By Neil Ashton At £42.5million, Mesut Ozil is the most expensive export in the history of German football. Last night you wouldn’t have paid two bob for him. There should have been something special about returning to the country where it all started for the Arsenal midfielder. But behind those eyes something is going on with Ozil because he is not right. In a 45-minute spell that passed him by before he was substituted with a leg injury at half-time, he had just 21 touches of the ball. To put that into perspective Thiago Alcantara, in the heart of Bayern’s midfield, had 66. Want more? Bastian Schweinsteiger 47, Arjen Robben 33, Franck Ribery 33. Ozil, the highest-paid player at Arsenal, is nicking a living. In the Allianz Arena, against the world’s best club side, he had a face on him like a slapped backside. He was lucky to get to half-time. We have been here before with Ozil, notably at Manchester City when Arsenal lost 6-3, and again in the 5-0 defeat at Liverpool ...
Diego Costa extended his rich vein of form with a double as Atletico Madrid thumped AC Milan 4-1 to send the seven-times winners packing and secure a place in the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in 17 years. Costa, who struck in Atletico's 1-0 win at the San Siro in the first leg of the last-16 tie and has seven goals in five appearances in Europe's elite club competition, opened the scoring in the third minute with an acrobatic volley. Kaka levelled with a header in the 27th as Milan briefly took control of the match before Arda Turan's deflected effort sailed into the net five minutes before halftime to restore the home team's lead. Raul Garcia headed Atletico's third in the 71st minute and Costa struck again five minutes from time to seal a 5-1 aggregate success and crown a near-perfect night for the fans thronging Calderon stadium next to Madrid's Manzanares river.

news Thiago Alcantara, he was a great honor to be his favorite player with Pep Guardiola.
club record fee for German. Man United will step-up their pursuit of Bayern Munich star Toni Kroos with the Daily Mailclaiming that boss David Moyes is ready to sanction a £40m bid for the midfielder. 24 year old Kroos has been in ongoing contractual talks with his Bavarian employers with the German international said to have demanded as much as treble his current £60k a week salary, so as to have parity with the Allianz Arena side’s top earners. Man United have wisely stepped in and are said to be happy to offer Kroos a massive £250k a week deal as an incentive to quit the Bundesliga for a move to Old Trafford. Given the number of central midfield options open to boss Pep Guardiola, who can call upon the likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger, Thiago Alcantara, Javi Martinez and Mario Gotze, an offer of this magnitude may be considered by the al conquering German side. David Moyes is desperate to freshen up a rather brittle midfield and could well be ready to permanently offload loaned out Brazilian Anders ...

Bayern open up large lead, Eintracht held (FIFA.com) Monday 24 February 2014 Share Bayern Munich took another step towards an ever-more inevitable German Bundesliga title as they routed Hannover 4-0 to open up a 19-point cushion at the top. Thomas Muller scored twice with Thiago Alcantara and Mario Mandzukic also on target in yet another comfortable victory for Pep Guardiola's men. Hannover started well and created plenty of chances to score, but Bayern showed a sublime level of efficiency to take maximum points for the 20th time in 22 matches, exceeding 60 goals for the season in the process. Sunday's other match between two teams just above the drop zone could not match that as Eintracht Frankfurt and Werder Bremen drew 0-0, a result which will do more to please Bremen after they played from the 34th minute onwards with ten men after Felix Kroos collected the second of two quick bookings.
6:00 PM The Spaniard was pleased with the way in which the Bavarians recovered from a poor start to record an ultimately comfortable win that moved them 19 points clear Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola has insisted that his side's 4-0 Bundesliga win over Hannover on Sunday was not as easy as the final scoreline suggests. Thomas Muller gave the Bavarians the lead after 25 minutes of play before Thiago Alcantara made it two shortly after. Muller and Mario Mandzukic then put the match to bed after the interval. "The opening minutes of the game are always difficult. It took us a while to find our rhythm," Guardiola said at a press conference. "But we put in a great performance after the opener. "We had the chance to extend our lead over our rivals in the Bundesliga and I am happy that the guys seized the opportunity." Bayern now hold a 19-point lead over second-placed Bayer Leverkusen. The Bavarians will resume their Bundesliga campaign away to Augsburg on March 1.

Manchester United are being tipped to make a move for Rafa ‘Rafinha’ Alcantara in the summer. The 21-year old Barcelona midfielder, currently on loan with Celta Vigo, has emerged on the transfer radar of the Red Devils who pursued his older brother Thiago Alcantara in the last summer window before his move from Campo Nou to Bayern Munich. Reports suggest that United are continuing to watch Rafinha before their proposed chase of him when he returns to parent club Barca at the end of the season.
Arsenal vs Bayern; when Pep took over Bayern, Juup Heynckes had put up a formidable side that really needed no retouch. but Pep went on to move Lahm into midfield and drop Kroos deeper even when he had Gotze, Schweinsteiger, Alcantara, Martinez, Gotze, Gustavo(before he left) to choose from. he also made the side more possessive and has surprisingly stack to players he would never have played at Barca; Muller, Robben, Mandzukic for all the attacking similarities and midfield prowess that both teams possess this game could be won in deep midfield- a position that was the talking point the last time Guardiola visited Arsenal. Jack Wilshere was the man in question; he bossed and stopped the best Barcelona side that we shall ever see for years. but after that match; for all the praise he got from the Arsenal and Barcelona faithful alike, Pep watered it down by saying he had more players like Jack in the Barcelona lower ranks; today could be that day that one of them; Thiago Alcantara makes a statement of his ...

With more cash spent servicing debt than signing players, Moyes is at a disadvantage, while Diego Simeone is counting the cost of indulgence in January David Moyes will attempt to rebuild an empire next summer with Manchester United not likely to participate in the Champions League for the first time since 1995. The manner in which high-class players have avoided signing for the English champions in the past few transfer windows - think Thiago Alcantara, Cesc Fabregas and Sami Khedira - does not bode well for their prospects of acquiring the services of performers who can genuinely alter their fortunes. The recent transfer activity at Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco shows that players will still buy into a project provided the money is right but United are falling behind in that context too. Former captain Roy Keane told ITV this week: "They've kind of cut corners in terms of transfers in the last few years, they've not gone out and got the big players, and it's just caught up with them this year." Are Gla ...

Toni Kroos has signalled he could be ready to quit Bayern Munich after being linked with a move to Manchester United. David Moyes was recently spotted in Germany running the rule over Kroos and Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus, and the Bayern midfielder, 24, admits he’s keeping his options open after talks stalled over a new deal. ‘I am unable to rule anything out,’ he told kicker-Sportmagazin. ‘I am under contract with Bayern Munich (until June 2015). Actually there are yet no further talks (regarding a new contract) scheduled. I will therefore fully focus on the second half of the season. ‘There are worse situations in life. I play for a top club, and under a top coach. I am pleased, and sometime in the future a decision will be made.’ Bayern currently have a raft of players competing in Kroos’ favoured position, with Mario Goetze, Thiago Alcantara, Xherdan Shaqiri, Thomas Muller, Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery all battling for first-team places.
Kroos may have made 17 appearances for Bayern this season in the Bundesliga, but his place in the side has remained under threat since the summer arrivals of Thiago Alcantara and Mario Gotze, and a move to Old Trafford could prove to be beneficial to both the player and United.
Liverpool have communicated with Bundesliga powerhouse Bayern Munich to ask about the availability of winger Xherdan Shaqiri, according to reports. The Reds are considering the Swiss international to be a contingency measure, should they fail to convince FC Basel to sell the latter's highly-rated midfielder, Mohamed Salah. Shaqiri, who is also a product of Basel, signed with the Bavarians in 2012 but has found it hard to make a breakthrough in the first-team. The acquisition of Mario Gotze and Thiago Alcantara last summer has placed him further below the pecking order. Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to bring the 22-year-old to Anfield on loan and give him the much needed opportunities that he craves for at the Allianz Arena. In any case, the link will help the Reds' case in speeding up talks concerning Basel's Salah, but a Shaqiri deal would, not at all, be that bad.
Thiago Alcantara and Mario Gotze, these boys are marvel to watch, they make football look simple. I'm enjoying
To all the people who are talking about Mata and Dante deals. I just want to remind you that Sneijder signed Man United 150 times and Thiago Alcantara joined us 100 times :) wait till it comes on manutd.com or any other official statement. -Rohan
Bayern Munich could attempt to hijack Julian Draxler's proposed move from Schalke to Arsenal, it has emerged. The 20-year-old, widely regarded as one of the best young players in the world, is thought to be closing in on a January switch to the Emirates Stadium, with Arsene Wenger keen to speed up a deal for one of his summer transfer targets. However, SportsDirect News understands that Bayern have also been keen to snap up the exciting attacking midfielder, and may themselves try to persuade him to move this month. ADVERTISEMENT Pep Guardiola's side are already well stocked in that position, with a world class selection of Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben, Thomas Mueller, Mario Goetze and Thiago Alcantara available to play behind main striker Mario Mandzukic, though the treble winners are keen to land German football's biggest prospect. Like Arsenal, Bayern initially wanted to pursue Draxler in the summer, but are now concerned that he is edging closer to a move to England. This would represent another major ...
Borussia Dortmund general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke has told fans the club will make notable additions in the summer to compensate for the high-profile departure of Robert Lewandowski. • Uersfeld: End of an era? • Buczko: BVB's window plans On Saturday, Bayern Munich confirmed that Lewandowski will be joining them at the end of the season on a free transfer. Questions have been raised about how competitive Dortmund will be after he leaves, with BVB having already lost Mario Goetze to the Bavarians last year and been beaten to the signing of Thiago Alcantara. But Watzke has vowed that funds will be made available to replace Lewandowski, despite Dortmund not receiving a fee for the Poland international. "We must, we want to and we will invest in the summer," he told Sport Bild magazine. "To what extent will remain our secret, though. We're not going to panic about finding a suitable successor to Robert Lewandowski, and we're not going to put ourselves under any pressure." Dortmund spent more heavily t ...

European champions Bayern Munich added the Club World Cup to their collection of trophies when they comfortably outplayed Raja Casablanca to win 2-0 in the final on Saturday. Defender Dante and Thiago Alcantara scored in the first 22 minutes as Bayern followed up the Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup treble they won last season. Raja, who stunned South American champions Atletico Mineiro to reach the final, were comprehensively outplayed and offered only the occasional threat. Bayern coach Pep Guardiola had won the tournament twice before with Barcelona while the Bavarians lifted the old Intercontinental Cup twice, in 1976 and 2001. Guardiola started without a recognised striker as winger Xherdan Shaqiri replaced Mario Mandzukic. Raja, the second team from outside Europe or South America to reach the final since the tournament began in its current form in 2005, were only briefly in the contest. Mouhssine Iajour fired wide from a half chance in the fifth minute and from that moment the hosts were ...
