Thia-Goes on holiday, leaving transfer discussion to his Father

Thiago Alcântara has been the number one target for Manchester United in the transfer market over the past few weeks, a move that seems to be getting closer and closer.

The Barcelona midfielder, who had an impressive Euro 2013 for Spain in the under-21s, has reportedly agreed personal terms and wages with Manchester United and now just needs to finalize with Barcelona, stating that he wants to leave.

Thiago has now gone on a summer holiday and left transfer discussions to his Father and agent:

Alcantara’s father Mazinho, a former Brazil international, flew to Manchester on Thursday morning for discussions with Manchester United, discussions that went very well, by the end of all meetings both parties had agreed a final transfer buy-out clause fee and weekly wages for the midfielder.

Mazinho and agent stayed at the Lowry Hotel in the centre of Manchester before returning to Spain on Friday afternoon. Thiago’s father is now due to meet with Barcelona to express his son’s wishes to leave the club.

Barcelona are reportedly not happy with the way that Manchester United have gone about this business and are likely to offer Thiago a larger weekly wage to stay at the club, an offer to which his father is due to turn down in a favour of a move to Manchester for guaranteed first-team football every week.

Does the thought of Carrick & Thiago in midfield next season excite you?

Enjoy that? Give it a share!

Barcelona are reportedly not happy with the way that Manchester United have gone about this business…..

What bidding his buyout clause?

Don’t like it when the shoe is on the other foot do they?

Remind me again how they tapped up Cesc whilst he was at Arsenal.

They should know feeling of other teams when they used more ugly ways to sign players like Cesc, Henry etc.. Also Thiago has a buy-out clause. So it is not unfair move by Man United on Thiago. They wanted to know the player mind before activating the buy-out clause.

with 4-3-3- formation of carrick or strootmen in the dmf role and kagawa and thiago as the creative player behind RVP will be devastating. as well as Bale and Zaha on the wide again will send shiver down to any opponent. i hope Moyes goes for strootment, thiago and Bale soon. selling rooney won’t matter cos hernandez who is a natural goal scorer and welbeck who can play wide or upfront can support RVP.

i totally agree bale, strootman and thiago. if we can`t get bale we should go for rooney plus cash deal to get ronaldo. our defense is really fine and we don`t need anything until december atleast

it wuld be pleasing to d eye to watch carrick,kagawa,rooney,rvp n possibly thiago on d same pitch. I’m very happy we r about to sign him,hope d deal is announced as soo as possible.

well i think the spanish footballers r starting t realise that the EPL is the best league goin plus a good league fr givin young players t show wt they can do barca need t learn from this and also Ronaldo said he wanted t join the best club in the world pmsl … hes won 1 la liga medal since he left weve won 2 EPLs beent another 2 cham league finals as people say if u leave united theres only 1 way … down . ronaldo myt av scored 200+ goals but thats bad t say hes gt 1 medal at real end ov lool my opinion


I just hope Thiago’s father and agent finalises his discussion wit bacca and the deal is done. MAN U rules world football

I want thiago @ manchester united,,I really love his style of playin and can’t wait to see him @ old trafford next season

It really excites me. Having them both in d midfield will make us really good. I still think united should wrap up strootman as well. We don’t have a box-to-box midfielder(enforcer). Carrick is 30 and he’s aging, strootman is young and strong. Strootman need to be in united s that there will be no complacency ғƦøӎ carrick. We can’t solely rely on carrick cos football is really changing and this coming season is gonna be tough. The top clubs are reinforcing their midfield so we can’t be left out

That’s will be cool but I think thiago is not exited for manchester united because thiago went to a vacation and let the discussion for his father but I want thiago

We have got to forget about Zaha being a regular first team player next season, he will be a decent sub as was Ronny in his first season.
