Man City move to trump Liverpool for Bayern Munich ace Thiago

Manchester City have joined the battle for Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara.

City boss Pep Guardiola, who worked with the Spain international at Barcelona and Bayern, is ready to make a move, says TuttoJuve.

Juventus and Liverpool also are considering a bid for the midfielder who is out of contract next summer.

Thiago, seen as one of the world's best midfielders, is keen on a move to England, with the newly-crowned Premier League champions Liverpool said to be eyeing up a £32million deal for the midfielder this summer.

Thiago, a product of Barcelona's La Masia academy, has made 231 appearances since joining Bayern from Barcelona in 2013, despite suffering with a host of injury problems since his arrival. This season he has started 25 times and scored three goals, with two assists.
