Man United planning €60m bid for Spanish star
Man United interested to sign Bayern Munchen midfielder Thiago Alcantara in this summer. Jose Mourinho wants to strengthen United midfield and several high-class players are on his list. Shakhtar midfielder Fred already joined Red Devils and Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic also heavily linked with Premier League giants. Bayer midfielder Thiago is another option who perfectly suits any team due to his universality. Spain international is a world-class player.
Alcantara is a product of Barcelona youth academy and spent many years in Catalan club. He joined Bayern from Blaugrana in 2013 with a €25m deal. Guardiola was the author of this transfer. Spanish midfielder became an important player for the club and since then plays perfectly every year. In this season Thiago played 37 games, scored 7 goals and made 2 assists. He also named in Spain squad for the World Cup but his team lost in a penalty shoot-out against Russia and kicked out from the Mundial.
Alcantara contracted with Bayern until 2021 and his release clause is nearly €60m. Now Spain international is free and has much time to think about his future. United also signed Porto right-back Diogo Dalot and Stoke goalkeeper Lee Grant.
