Whilst the player was out on vacation and promotional duty in the principality last week, it is believed that the 28-year-old met with the Stade Louis II outfit’s owner, Dmitry Rybolovlev.

“Of course it is pleasing to know that a team like Real Madrid is tracking me, as it means I’ve done a good job. Now I am focused only on giving my best for the Bianconeri jersey.”

“Pep knows Thiago, he was as coach a reference in Barcelona, he finalised much the style of Barcelona and Thiago fits in with him perfectly, he fits in with his team,” Milla reflected on La Xarxa this week.
“Thiago is a player of a great level, there are not many like him and he could fit in at any team, and that he is going to a club where his Coach wants him and know him is much better for both he and Guardiola.
“Thiago is ambitious and that he wants minutes to play is normal.”
