Has Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara dashed Manchester United’s hopes of signing him with a single Instagram post?

The 23 year old has been heavily linked with United this summer, with reports that he had agreed terms with the club, but there have been no further developments despite claims that his father flew back to Barcelona to tell the club his son wanted to leave.

Over the past few days Barcelona have gone from trying to convince him to stay, to accepting that he was on his way out but now they may have been handed a life line after Thiago posted an image to his Instagram account with the simple caption:

I <3 Barcelona
