Chelsea have been presented with as good as an opportunity as we’re ever likely to get to sign Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara.
When we think of Thiago, we think of the golden boy produced by La Masia. The natural air to Xavi and Andres Iniesta.
Things haven’t gone exactly to plan for him, yet he still has 16 pieces of silverware to his name.
Now 27-years-old, Thiago is no longer one of Europe’s hottest prospects, he’s one of Europe’s best midfielders – when fit.
That’s why it’s unusual that Bild suggest he could leave Bayern this summer.
Thiago is thought to be somewhat disgruntled at the Allianz Arena. His favoured destination is a return to Barcelona, but that’s not to say they’ll reciprocate the interest.
If Thiago really is on the move this summer, it’s an opportunity that Chelsea cannot afford to pass up.
The prospect of him playing alongside N’Golo Kante and Jorginho in the middle of the park is utterly mouthwatering.
Make it happen, Marina.
