Thiago Motta (born 28 August 1982) is a former professional footballer who played as a midfielder, and a manager.

He spent his early career at Barcelona, where he was injury-prone. He played two and a half seasons with Inter Milan before joining Paris Saint-Germain in January 2012, winning 27 major titles between the three clubs combined. He also had brief spells with Atlético Madrid in Spain, and Genoa in Italy.

Born in Brazil, Motta also holds Italian citizenship. After making two appearances for his country of birth in 2003, he represented the latter national team a total of 30 times since making his debut in 2011, scoring once. He appeared at the 2014 World Cup and two European Championships with Italy, finishing second at Euro 2012.

Following his retirement in 2018, he coached Paris Saint-Germain youths. In October 2019, he was appointed as Genoa's new manager, being fired in December following a bad series of results.
