Manchester United fans are looking interested here in the Football Transfer Tavern as it is claimed by IBTimes that the club could well be in with a chance of landing Thiago Alcantara.
The midfielder could well be available this season for around 25 million euros – much less than the 90 million he was initially valued at by the club. Now it seems that a desire from the Brazilian born player to leave the club and play a vital role for a team week in, week out could well influence the Catalan giants into selling the player.
The 22-year-old has long interested United and given that even three years after breaking into the first team at the Camp Nou, it seems a move could be closer than ever – add this to the fact that Xavi and Andres Iniesta don’t exactly look like loosening their stranglehold on the starting places in the middle of the park and at 22 Alcantara wants to be making a name for himself – even if it means a move away from the club with the hope of a Cesc Fabregas-like situation occurring later down the line.
Will United make their move for Thiago? Rate this rumour below.
