After weeks of rumours floating around, it seems like the FC Barcelona playmaker Thiago Alcantara is heading over to the English champions, Manchester United.
The talented youngster has been unable to gain a starting position with the Spanish giants and sees the red side of Manchester as the perfect destination to move on in his career.
Thiago showed off his talent at the previous U21’s European Championship, by putting in a number of solid performances and capping it off with a first half hat-tirck in the final against Italy. This was sure to impress the new Manchester United boss David Moyes, who will certainly be looking for a big name to be one of his first signings for the Red Devils.
It has been widely reported that the style of play that Thiago could bring to Manchester United will heavily strengthen them in a season where they will aim to protect their championship.
According to ‘Manchester Evening News’ Thiago is going to cost Manchester United up to £17 million which could be seen as a bargain within a few years.
Whatever the end result, the future of Thiago is going to be an interesting one for all football fans.
