Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney admits he has concern over Liverpool signing "one of the best midfielders". Bayern Munich's Thiago Alcantara has been linked with the Merseyside team throughout the summer transfer window.

With Liverpool snagging their first-ever Premier League title last season and looking to strengthen, Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney admits that he is concerned over Liverpool's potential transfers.

Thiago Alcantara of Bayern Munich, who nearly signed for United to play next to Rooney in 2013 if it wasn't for David Moyes rejecting the signing, is supposedly on his way to Liverpool for a deal ranging between £20-30 million.

"He's a great player. It would be great to see him in the Premier League, actually."
