fcbayern.de: Thiago, a very warm welcome to Munich. How much are you looking forward to FC Bayern?
Thiago: I'm really looking forward to it and I'm extremely happy. If there’s a day in your life when you can be completely happy, today is one of those days. I'm thrilled to be at a massive club like Bayern Munich.

What are your reasons for choosing Munich?
On the one hand, there's the history of the club, which has been one of the best in the world for many years. On top of that, this team plays very attractive football. And I believe the arrival of Pep Guardiola will provide an additional boost.
