Metro are all about the drama today here in the Football Transfer Tavern and their latest claim surrounding Manchester United target Thiago Alcantara is no different.
The midfielder has been reported to be set on leaving the Camp Nou in search of first team football this season and to build on his growing reputation after a sensational spell skippering Spain in the recent Under-21 tournament in Israel this summer.
Thiago has been heavily linked to Manchester United and the club were thought to be closing in on a deal for the midfielder.
Now however it has been claimed that in actual fact, Bayern Munich are the club that will net the 20-year-old star – who has prioritised linking up with former manager Pep Guardiola above everything else.
Of course Bayern have a wealth of talent in the middle of the park and as one of our punters quips, it seems odd that Thiago would choose to make a move to the Bavarian giants when his place in the first team would be as unsure as it currently is at the Camp Nou.
Despite all of this, United and David Moyes are not giving up on the player who is available at a cut price fee this summer due to the mix up in his contract and represents brilliant value for money.
Will Thiago take United by surprise and link up with Guardiola at Bayern? Let us know your thoughts below.
