Manchester United to move for Spaniard

thiago.jpgManchester United manager David Moyes is the centre of attention once again in the Football Transfer Tavern with Mirror Football reporting that he is readying a £15 million bid for Barcelona star Thiago Alcantara.

The midfielder is highly rated at the Spanish champions but he is becoming increasingly frustrated with his lack of first team action and may seek a move to pastures new this summer.

Moyes was looking at the youngster while at Everton last season and may continue this interest upon arriving at Old Trafford in the coming weeks.

Manchester City are also thought to be interested in the 22-year-old midfielder who has been in action for Spain Under-21 team at the European Championships in Israel and have sent scouts to watch him in the age-group tournament.

Alcantara, who is valued at around £15 million by Barca, is actually represented by brother of incoming Bayern Munich manager Pepe but there is no sign of the Champions League winners moving for the Spanish ace.

The Mirror understands that United have made contact with Thiago’s father in order to bring the starlet to United this summer.

Should Moyes take steps to secure the Barca ace? Let us know your thoughts below.
