thiago.jpgIt is an interesting day for Manchester United fans here at the Football Transfer Tavern as it has been claimed by Marca that the club could well land the next Xavi for £15 million.

Barcelona player Thiago Alcantara has become one of the most wanted players in Europe this summer given the fact he is set to leave the Catalan giants and it had initially been thought that the bank would literally have to be broken in order to land the player whose new contract had a release clause of around £75 million.

Now however as the player has not played the number of games specified in his contract to attract such a release clause, he could be available for as little as £15 million this summer and now Manchester United are thought to be ready to swoop for the star.

Given that midfield reinforcements are something United have long been looking for, it seems that Thiago could well be perfect for David Moyes. However it will not be easy for United to land the player – a host of other sides are also on the trail for the player and are willing to pay big money to land him.

Barcelona are reluctant to let the player leave yet in order for him to gain first team experience and actually move forward in his career it seems inevitable a move will occur. The club will also insist on a buy back clause for the player meaning should he progress as expected, they have the option to bring him home to the Camp Nou.

Do you think United should move for Alcantara? Rate this rumour below.

      We simply need someone who picks the ball from carrick and delivers it to the strikers not a whole new squad

    I believe we need some fresh blood and pace in the starting 11. The nucleus is serious though, thanks to Sir Alex.

    My startling 11 including potential new arrivals:

    GK: De Gea

    RB: Rafael, CB: Jones, CB: Vidic, LB: (Shaw) or (Baines)

    RM: Zaha or (James Rodriguez), CM: (Thiago) or (Strootman), CM: Carrick, LM: (Bale)

    AMF/SS: Kagawa or (Rooney if the club keeps him)

    CF: RVP


    GK: Lindergaard
    RB/CB: Smalling
    CB: Rio
    RM: Valencia
    CM/LM: Powell
    AMF/SS: Welbeck
    CF: Chicharito
