Thiago scored a first half hat trick

Spanish paper Sport are reporting that there may be a resolution to the Thiago Alcantara transfer saga soon after Manchester United tweaked their offer to allay the midfielder’s fears.

The paper claim that having seen the ill fated transfer of former Barcelona starlet Giovani Dos Santos to Tottenham, Thiago wanted a clause put into his contract that allows him to leave next summer for €20m if he doesn’t play a certain amount of games.

Thiago’s problems with Barcelona stem from the fact that he doesn’t see enough playing time at the Nou Camp starting just 15 La  Liga games last season and with this in mind, he is looking to ensure he doesn’t find himself in a similar predicament at his new club.

Thiago’s lack of game time last season saw him fall out of the Spanish national team and with the World Cup next summer, he has designs of making the trip to Brazil so needs to ensure that he is given the game time to ensure that he figures in Vicente del Bosque’s plans.

Initially United were said to be reluctant to add the clause to his contract but with the player insisting, and the deal in the balance, United are said to be ready to add to play ball. It’s said that Thiago is set to triple his wages with a move to United, but the financial aspect of the deal is only part of the appeal of a move to United.

In all honesty Thiago shouldn’t have any problem reaching an appearance target. With Scholes’ retirement, Fletcher’s health problem, Anderson seemingly incapable of remaining fit for a whole season and some questioning the quality of tom Cleverley, midfield is undoubtedly United’s weakest area. The side has been calling out for reinforcements for quite a while, and the Spaniard should be the solution.

    It’s like Moyes is biased. If he knows he can not do this job, let him go away from that place. He knows our problem in dat squad and he is there delaying to fill d vacuum.

  7. Rothymie says:

    We should allow Moyes to do his job. I strongly believe that he knows what is good for Man Utd.
