Thiago called up by Spain

Thiago Alcantara has been rewarded for his excellent progression by being called up by Vicente Del Bosque for next Wednesday’s friendly match against Italy. Thiago played a key role in Spain’s under-21 European Championship triumph in Denmark and scored this incredible goal in the final against Switzerland:

It is curious that this news comes out today at the same time as the report that says Arsenal have rejected our latest offer of approximately €38 million for Cesc Fabregas. I’ve said all along that the main obstacle in the Cesc signing is the difference in value for the two clubs. Arsenal do not want to go lower than €45 million and it seems unlikely that Barça will meet this price. What is really curious is the report that Sandro Rosell sent Cesc a text message this week telling him not to worry. If this is true it would indicate that we will eventually meet Arsenal’s asking price. The soap opera continues…

    That is a sick goal. Playing today I tried to hit that sort of a ball roughly five times (just to pass the ball, not to actually score) and I hooked every single one of them… What I’m saying is that ball is the difference between me and Thiago. hahaha.

    Hey guys it’s been a while.

    IMO it will be such a waist to buy Cesc now. If he really wants to come he can buy his contract out of Arsenal. Also, we will be hindering a greater talent (Thiago) i know he is young to play at top level week in/week out but Xavi still have 2 years of this level.

    as much as its reward for thiago’s game, dont be fooled into thinking its not also very political. play him one game for spain and he’s locked in. so if shit ever goes bad at barca, he maybe leaves, then maybe looks at brazil, but cant.
