Lionel Messi Knows Thiago Is Headed To Real Madrid This Summer, According To Reports
Lionel Messi is reportedly aware of how keen Thiago Alcantara is to join up with Real Madrid.
The player is currently playing for Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, but with two weeks of the transfer window left, it appears he is angling a move to Madrid, having played alongside Messi during his time at Barca.
According to Don Balon, Real themselves are keen on the midfielder. The report also says that the next few days will be crucial in determining whether Thiago does indeed make the move to the La Liga giants.
With both parties reportedly keen on the move, it appears as though this one could be just a matter of time.

I didn't see thiago as a betrayer or anything he need to boost his career and he believe Madrid is the best place to do that, everybody has the right to choose what he/she believe is right for themself.- Babalola Gbenga O (@babalolafish) August 10, 2018
He is a better player than he was treated by Barca. Why did Barca not give him playing time enough to increase his release clause? They let him leave for a pittance when the lure of Pep was HIGHER than the release clause.- Chukwunyere Ugwuanya (@Chuksophy) August 10, 2018
The Spaniard is a self-obsessed football fanatic. He said in an interview with the Guardian:
"I always loved football so much and I knew from a very young age I was going to be a footballer; I used to watch the way they did everything really closely. I lived with it.
