Thiago Spanish midfielder

Liverpool fans will be furious if Thiago Alcantara ends up signing for Manchester United and the latest reports seem positive for the Red Devils.

According to Constantin Eckner, Man Utd are interested in luring the Spaniard and Bayern are expecting an offer from them.

The renowned German journalist has further stated that the Premier League champions consider the signing of the Bundesliga star too expensive.

Similarly, yesterday on The Athletic, James Pearce revealed that Liverpool have suffered losses worth £100million due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and they would face trouble splashing £30million for Thiago.

Moreover, Pearce claimed that at Anfield, luring another center back and a winger are much bigger priorities.

So, Man United might be in a better position than their arch rivals to sign the 29-year-old midfielder, who will be out of contract next summer and has already told the Bavarians that he wants to leave this summer.

The ex Barcelona midfielder is a world class talent, who put in a world class performance in the final of the Champions League against PSG to help Bayern lift the coveted trophy for the sixth time in their history.

Therefore, he is going to be a quality signing for Solskjaer if the Norwegian does end up luring him. However, do they really need the La Roja star? May be not.

Last season, United had four senior center midfielders for two starting positions in Ole’s 4-2-3-1 system. Now, they have five with the addition of Dutch international Van de Beek this summer.

Thiago, if signed, would be the sixth senior CM and therefore would only crowd the already crowded area. In your view, should Man United sell one of their midfielders to sign the European Champion from Bayern Munich?
