Thiago Alcantara Is ‘About To Leave Bayern Munich And Sign For Manchester United', According To Report
A sensational report in Spain has claimed that Thiago Alcantara is 'about to leave Bayern Munich and sign for Manchester United'.
Thiago continues to be linked with a move this summer.
The Spanish midfielder looked on the verge of joining newly crowned Premier League champions Liverpool but after months of speculation, Jurgen Klopp's side will not pursue a deal for the player, according to ESPN, who believe The Reds will only make a move in the transfer market if a 'significant member' of the squad is sold.
It does look likely that Thiago will leave the Bundesliga side this summer. In addition to rumours that Thiago has already put his house up for sale in Munich today, Bayern CEO Karl-Heinze Rummenigge has confirmed that the Spaniard is looking for a new challenge.
But in a surprising twist, it is being reported that the midfielder is about to join the ranks at Old Trafford.
In a report about Thiago's brother, Rafinha, Catalan newspaper Sport claim in the piece that Thiago is about to leave Bayern Munich and sign for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.
Shortly after the report emerged online, respected German journalist Christian Falk, who is head of football at SPORTBILD, refused to rule out the move.
