Spain boss Vicente Del Bosque has advised Manchester United target Thiago Alcantara to remain at Barcelona despite his search for playing time.

The young midfielder is said to be fed up with waiting for his chance at the Nou Camp and with designs of playing for Spain at the World Cup next year, believes a move away will allow him to impress Spain boss Del Bosque and reclaim his place in the national team.

United are keen on Thiago and have been heavily linked with a move for him but has Del Bosque’s latest comments derailed United’s move for the 22 year old?

The Spanish boss is quoted as saying:

“The most important thing for Thiago is that he keeps on getting games. I think he would get them at Barcelona, he is held in a very high regard at the club.”

With Thiago looking to impress his national team manager, his words will hold serious power as he looks to sort out his future. With United apparently having made no contact with Barcelona in regards to a move, will Del Bosque’s words be enough to convince the youngster to stay at the Nou Camp?

Whilst it has been claimed that Thiago has already agreed terms with United, nothing has been confirmed and it is not beyond the realms of possibility that Thiago remains at Barcelona, something even more likely following Del Bosque’s words.

    Del bousqet will surely support his country just like english legends advising rooney to stay, I expectet that from them. But it would be foolish of thiago to lean on the selfish advice cos manu is just the place for thiago to get his playing time, starting 11 guaranteed, just like thiago is the best cm manu can get at the moment. Can you all please tell me a better young matured cm manu can get at the moment ?
