Now the Audi Cup is finished, it is clear that Thiago Alcantara's amazing performance, scoring 3 out 4 FC Barcelona's goals, is the highlight of the whole tournament.
The 'Samba' youngster has not only been a part of Guardiola's team: He has LED us to victory and left his quality mark in both matches, scoring beautiful, important goals and feeding the never-ending debate: Does Barça need Cesc?
Well, I say: YES, we do. While Thiago will obviously have a bigger part to play this season, he is a different player to Fabregas. 'Samba' Alcantara is more attacking, anarchic, likely to create unexpected magic. Cesc would bring Premiership experience, game control, a closer alternative to Xavi.
Would Cesc be cheaper than 40MILLeu next summer? Of course, but if Guardiola (our most successful coach EVER) thinks he would improve the squad and Rosell has money to spend (otherwise they wouldn't be bidding for him!) there's only one answer: BRING CESC TO THE CAMP NOU!!!!
THIAGO IS A GREAT PLAYER, BUT FC BARCELONA STILL NEED CESC FABREGAS!!!!!
