Thiago Alcantara is a top transfer target for Real Madrid this summer

Thiago has proven himself to be one of the best midfielders in the world these past few years, with the Spaniard constantly impressing fans with his performance for both Bayern and Spain.

The Spaniard’s best season for the German giants came last season, as Thiago managed to clock up a total of nine goals and eight assists in 41 appearances in all competitions as his side won yet another Bundesliga title.

If either side are to land a deal for Thiago this summer, the one thing that is certain is that either side are to have their hands on one of the world’s best midfielders.
