Manchester United have not strengthened their midfield in almost two years and they are linked with a top quality midfielder in the form of Thiago Alcantara.
According to a claim made by Sport today, the 29-year-old is about to leave Bayern Munich to sign for Manchester United.
Transfer: £250,000-a-week playmaker has the option to sign for Manchester United – Report
The renowned Spanish source have mainly talked about his brother Rafinha Alcantara, who has been playing on loan for Celta Vigo this term and is expected to leave Barcelona on permanent basis this summer.
Sport have reported that like Thiago, Rafinha is also attracted by the idea of moving to the Premier League and could follow his brother to England.
Earlier this month, Sport covered a story and stated that the La Roja star is close to joining newly crowned Premier League champions Liverpool.
So, the latest report suggesting that he is now about to move to the Old Trafford outfit is a bit hard to believe. Nevertheless, we shall see how the transfer saga unfolds in the coming days.
Thiago won every major prize with Barcelona but was not able to start regularly at the Nou Camp. Therefore, he opted to move to the German Bundesliga in 2013.
With Bayern Munich, in seven seasons, he has won all the domestic trophies, including seven league titles and it is now time for him to look for another club.
His current contract with the Bavarians will expire next year and he is valued at around (Sport) 35 million euros (£32million). In your view, should Man United secure the signing of Thiago Alcantara to improve their midfield department?
That will be great
Ed Woodword who is as slow as snail when it comes completing transfers.
I am tired Man utd and Woodward 24/7 reading transfer news but one man has decided not to care so I will not watch utd game for rest of the season and if they still don’t strengthen weak areas I will not watch any utd game next season because going into UCL and being eliminated at early stages and see Liverpool equal pl title (20) is what I can’t take. Iam done with man utd
Woodward is the man dragging utd behind. A single transfer takes ages to either occur or fail. Am fed up with woodward. Why can’t he copy from David gill?
manchester united supporters were about to develop anxiety disorders as a result of becoming tired of reading transfer rumours . what does take to sign the players that we need, look at the teams we are competing with, they have already signed players they need and they are organising themselves for the new season. please ole and woodward be more serious we need a firing manchester united
I don’t even understand what Woodward ole and the board are waiting for almost every season we get a damned transfer romous but can’t never materialized every club is busy signing but what we hear always is romours why all this ,this current team is not that strong enough, we have a little problem at the back and our front is not sharp so this is what we’re going to use to play the UCL then we better not tempt to play to disgrace ourselves, we are fed up with you people, if you people don’t want to invest in the team how can you get ur returns now Manchester united is now like any ordnary team we don’t even feel happy in supporting again.
all we need is Thiago Alcantara,Sancho and Dayot……….Ole and Woodward do something we are playing UCL
Am tired of hearing and reading news everyday about the transfer rumours, Woodward why?? Ole why?? Why can’t we afford to sign players of our choices… Almost all the players in Europe we all price them all with signing them….. Am tired sluggish management
Woodward get’s a lot of criticism for being useless at his job and rightly so. But the real culprit’s are the Glazers. Despite being owner’s for quite some time, they still have a distinct lack of football knowledge. Whilst the Glazer’s remain in charge all UTD fans will suffer this annual disappointment in the transfer window.
Man utd copying the old Arsenal style at the higher cost than Wenger’s regime.
Woodward is the man who is dragging and pulling Manchester United down us we fans we want more transfer to be done today
