Thiago is said to have held negotiations with Red Devils, according to Jan Age Fjortoft in the tweet below, but it may be more complicated than that. Fjortoft casts some doubt over Red Devils being willing or able to afford Alcantara’s wages, while the footballer himself would favour a move to Liverpool.
That said, it is more or less impossible that the Merseyside giants will sign the 29-year-old midfielder unless Georginio Wijnaldum ends up leaving.
This surely gives Red Devils a huge advantage, though whether or not they intend on making the most of it stays to be seen.
With Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek heading to Man United and others, it seems unlikely that Red Devils would also need the Spanish midfielder, having also signed Bruno Fernandes in winter.
Red Devils transfer window has been dominated by talk of a possible move for Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho.
Red Devils could reportedly have a crucial edge over rivals Liverpool in the race for the transfer of Thiago Alcantara.
Spain international may have only played a starring role in his club’s UCL win at the end of the 2019/20 campaign, but his future at the Bundesliga club is in severe doubt as he heads into the final year of his deal.
