Benatia seals Bayern move

Pep's Thiago interest stuns Germany

Pep Guardiola’s desire to bring Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara to Bayern Munich has left the majority of the German media stunned.

Thiago Alcantara is a target for Manchester United and Chelsea
Thiago is wanted by Guardiola at Bayern.

Guardiola revealed at a press conference on Thursday that Thiago, 22, was the Treble winners' top transfer target this summer.

The online outlet of Germany’s biggest news magazine, Der Spiegel, ran the headline: ‘Bayern coach wants Thiago: Guardiola’s first bombshell’. With one “yes”, Guardiola has now fully arrived at Bayern, the article suggests.

“One hardly believed one’s ears,” Der Spiegel commented. “It was a coup by Guardiola, also for his own account. With his ‘yes’ he has positioned himself as a man of clear statements. He, moreover, must be very convinced he can lure Thiago to Sabener Strasse [Bayern’s training ground]; also because the agent of the attacking player is rather close to him - it is his brother, Pere Guardiola.”

The renowned nationwide daily newspaper, Sueddeutsche, suspect that a “revolution with a bunch of super, super players” could be on its way.

The article starts by looking back at Guardiola’s time in New York and how he followed Bayern’s climb to the very top of European football. “But Guardiola not only saw wins, nice plays, [Franck] Ribery and [Arjen] Robben’s dribbling on the wings and [Thomas] Muller’s goals; Guardiola saw a midfield that urgently needed improvement,” Sueddeutsche suggest. “That’s why he hold told [chief executive] Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and [sporting director] Matthias Sammer that ‘Mario Gotze is a super, super player, but I need Thiago. Thiago or no one!’”

Sueddeutsche also claim that the transfer will have “wide-ranging consequences” for Bayern’s tactics on the pitch. “The most successful coach has taken over the best team on the planet and now will drastically rebuild, so that it will become Guardiola’s team and stop being the Heynckes XI. What he plans is a revolution,” the paper states.

The Berlin nationwide daily, Berliner Zeitung, analyses the way Guardiola presses for things by joking, and called the former Barcelona coach a “fisher of men”, hinting at the fact that Thiago’s agent is Guardiola’s brother. “That competition will increase with the Thiago signing is no problem for Guardiola,” the paper suggests.

The Munich paper, Abendzeitung, had a closer look at the competition the midfielder may face at Bayern. They call Luiz Gustavo “possibly one of the losers of the Thiago signing” and believe Toni Kroos will have to fight hard to win back his place in the starting XI. Abendzeitung also claim that Xherdan Shaqiri “will have a hard time to present himself during his second season”.
