Pep Guardiola has told Bayern Munich to go out and get Thiago Alcantara, and doesn’t foresee any problems in fitting him into his midfielder laden team.

Last night a Spanish radio station claimed that Thiago had chosen to head to Bavaria to play under his former manager.

But whilst these reports were unconfirmed, today in a series of tweets German football supremo Raphael Honigstein has quoted Guardiola as confirming his side’s interest in Alcantara during a press conference:

“I want Thiago Alcantara and have asked (Bayern to get him) but I don’t know what will happen.

“I know him very well. I talked to Rummenigge and Sammer about him, but we will wait and see.

“I don’t think (adding another midfielder) will be a problem. I spoke to club about my concept and told them why I want Thiago Alcantara.

“Thiago is the only player I want, that’s what I told them, it’ll be him or no one

“We have many players but we the need the special (quality) that Thiago Alcantara brings.┬áThe club will decide. I have told them my opinion.

“Nobody will leave Barcelona, unless they feel they won’t play much. He wants to play. That’s why I proposed him to the club.┬áJavier Martinez can play at CB, he played very well there with Athletico”

Pep seems intent on signing the 22 year old, and with his past relationship with the player this pretty much ends United’s hopes of signing Thiago.

    Last year Hazard & Moura … This year Alcantra & Strootman!!! …… We’re obviously not good enough to get good midfielders anymore. Wouldn’t mind but Wanyama going to Southampton!!!

    I don’t think thiago had any intention of joining Utd or it would of been a done deal by now. He was probably using Utds great name to attract the attention of other clubs. Still we got some amazing youngsters of our own coming through. Look out for januzaj.

    Hahahan another Transfer saga! Another Heartache for us. When are we gonna learn. Sneider, Moura, Hazard etc, I could go on. Something is wrong with Man Utd when it comes to transfers these days. We seem to be too slow and reluctant in completing deals…far too slow, too bad.

    Whats wrong to united these days on transfer, we lose out on hazard,lucas moura last season. This summer we will loose out on good players again. I think united dont have money to spend on players. They leaves our fanz rumours eveyday. No trophes for united this season.
