Thiago Alcantara's future may lie at Barcelona, but not as a player. The Spain international, who has decided to retire this summer, has been approached by Hansi Flick to join his coaching staff.
It would be Thiago's return to Barcelona, the team he left. Now that his retirement has just been made official, it is difficult to be sure that he will end up with Flick, but both 'Sport' and 'Relevo' claim that negotiations are going well.
Fabrizio Romano's announcement about Thiago has accelerated talks between the club and the player. Flick wants him as a link between him and the squad.
The two men spent a season together at Bayern Munich and have enjoyed a good relationship ever since. In the next few days, Hansi Flick will have to decide which coaching staff he will have for his first adventure in Spanish football, in his first season at Barcelona.
