Barcelona have attempted to open talks with Bayern Munich for Thiago Alcántara.
Barca are pushing to bring the La Masia graduate back to the club this summer.
Bayern are surprised by Barca’s desperation, particularly as they showed little resistance when moving to sign him in 2013.
The Germans, however, have told Barca they’re willing to sell – for €90 million.
Such a fee means, for the moment, a Barca return is a non-starter for Thiago.
