Barcelona young starlet Thiago Alcantara could be on his way to Old Trafford after an agreement has been reached between his father and the Manchester United. Transfer looks almost set.
However Barca is not letting go one of their priciest young starlet easy. Better contracts were tabled as persuasion but the hat-trick hero from the Under-20s final insists more games which apparently Barca were unable to give, with Xavi & Aniesta as their preferred choice for the first team squad. Thiago wants first team football badly and moving to Manchester United not only guarantees him first team football but also Champions League football. And with United in need of strength in the midfield department, he'll definitely get his chance.
He's in need of games as he wants to break into the ranks of Spain Senior Team for the upcoming World Cup 2014 in Brazil. The only question, is Thiago Alcantara for sure coming to United? Or will there be another great U-turn or a silly detour. I hope he signs for United soon!
