Manchester City target stunning £50million deal for world-class midfielder
Manchester City and Pep Guardiola are readying an incredible £50million move for former Barcelona star Thiago Alcantara.
The Spanish midfielder has been considered one of the best central players in the world for a few years now since leaving the Camp Nou for Bayern Munich.
Though, the player has had some problems this season with injury and has not been able to show what he can do as he has in the past with Barcelona and when he moved to the Allianz Arena.
Even still, he has shone when he has been on the pitch and Pep Guardiola is looking to sign the man who he even signed for Bayern Munich back in 2013, according to the Daily Mail.

It is said that the Catalan boss believes that David Silva will be unable to play almost every game next season because of his age and that he feels he needs another player who can be just as consistent in the middle of the park.
Fernandinho and Yaya Toure are both also on the wrong side of 30 and Guardiola could be set to revamp his midfield with some youth.
Though, the fee quoted for Thiago certainly seems quite low, considering some of the fees that were bounded about for Marco Verratti last season.
Regardless, it looks as though Pep Guardiola could be looking for a reunion and Manchester City certainly have the cash to make it happen.
