Guardiola will ‘smash Man City transfer record for reunion with Thiago Alcantara’
PEP GUARDIOLA is set to smash Man City’s transfer record for a reunion with F.C Bayern Munich star Thiago Alcantara, as indicated by reports.
The City coach and Bayern midfielder, 27, spent three years in Germany together – after Pep Guardiola marked him for the Bundesliga goliaths from F.C Barcelona.
The Etihad chief sees 31-cap Spain international Thiago Alcantara as a long haul trade for Fernandinho.
Manchester City have looked worryingly exposed this season in games missed by the Brazilian defensive midfielder.
On Friday, Guardiola revealed all about his summer transfer plans – and recommended a midfielder would be en route.
Pep Guardiola said: “There are three or four positions to look for. We have a few thoughts, yet it’s a choice to purchase [a left-back].
« A holding midfielder we will try for, and one more position, although I’m not going to tell you which positions or players.”
