Thiago Alcantara, Bayern Munich’s first-choice midfielder in the last couple of years, looks like he wants to return to where it all started in Barcelona.

Thiago has a reputation for an unmatched flair, tenured in his younger days at La Masia.

After leaving in 2013, Thiago now wants to go back to Blaugrana.

According to Bild, the midfielder doesn’t want to extend the Bayern contract which runs out in 2021.

This means that the player could leave for free if they don’t extend him next season.

This should help Barca’s negotiating position.

The situation is very similar to Cesc Fabregas’ one, who also returned after leaving Barcelona early in his career.
