The Spain midfielder is considering leaving Bayern Munich this summer, with the German giants seeking €70m to sell.
Sport says Barca coach Ernesto Valverde and new sports director Eric Abidal are eager to bring Thiago back to La Masia. However, general manager Pep Segura holds the opposite view.
Segura doesn't believe Barca should waste time trying to sign a player who left the club.
