Coveted

According to Sport, Thiago Alcántara becomes the latest pawn in the historic battle between Barcelona and Real Madrid. The Bayern midfielder, a Barcelona youth-team product, could be set to leave the German club this summer in a deal reported to be worth 70 million euros.

Midfield solutions

Barcelona are keen to bring back Thiago to strengthen a midfield that will be without Andrés Iniesta next season, while new Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui wants to bring in a player who became a mainstay during his time in charge of La Roja.

Thiago left Barcelona for the German Champions five years ago for 25 million euros after becoming frustrated with his lack of game-time and playing second fiddle to Xavi and Iniesta.
