Barcelona: Bayern Munich have secured the transfer of midfielder Thiago Alcantara from Barcelona, reuniting him with coach Pep Guardiola.
Barcelona say that Bayern have agreed to pay the Spanish club 25 million euros for Thiago. The deal also includes an agreement to play a friendly match between the two clubs at some point in the next four years.
Thiago helped Spain's Under-21 team win the European championship last month, scoring a hat-trick in the final against Italy.
Born in Italy to Brazilian parents, Thiago came up through Barcelona's training academy and debuted for their first team in 2008. He made regular appearances for the past three seasons, but failed to become a first-choice starter in their star-studded midfield.
Thiago played for Guardiola for four seasons at Barcelona.
