According to a report from German news outlet Sport Bild, Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara has backed out of contract extension negotiations with the club – prompting many City supporters to debate a potential swoop on Twitter.
Should City sign Thiago?
Yes, in a heartbeat
No, too old
The midfielder seemingly appears to possess attributes that Pep Guardiola would admire, having completed 90.5% of his passes in the centre of the park as per WhoScored – scoring three goals in that time.
As David Silva and Leroy Sane both look like they’re heading out the exit door for entirely different reasons, some City supporters have debated the notion of signing Thiago – delivering a mixed array of opinions.
