Bayern München midfielder Thiago Alcantara has caught interest from Real Madrid, German Sky Sport understands.
The new Real Madrid coach, Julen Lopetegui, is known as a big fan of Thiago whom he had at his disposal during his time as Spanish national team coach. Now, Lopetegui wants to work together with the 27-year-old midfielder again at Real Madrid.
Real Madrid are currently closing a deal with Chelsea that will send Mateo Kovacic to London and want to turn the attention to Thiago as soon as the Kovacic transfer has been completed.
Thiago was already on Real Madrid's wish list in 2013, but back then, he decided to join Bayern München from FC Barcelona.
Since then, he has made 153 appearances for Bayern München with 25 goals and 27 assists to his name.
