Manchester United are set to sign Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich, despite been interest from Liverpool in there £36m-rated midfielder.
Thiago has really enjoyed seven successful years in Germany since joining Bayern Munich from Barcelona but the Brazilian star is expected to leave this summer after failing to agree terms over a new contract.
And it was just one year remaining on his current deal, Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirmed this month they will sell the unsettled midfielder this summer rather than risk losing him for nothing in 12 months time.
This situation has alerted clubs from around Europe but Liverpool were the first runners for his signature with Spanish.
Jurgen Klopp Liverpool Coach is also in the market for a new midfielder as Adam Lallana will leave Liverpool this summer while James Milner is coming towards the end of his career at Liverpool.
If Thiago move to Liverpool it would make more sense, however, if United are really in for the Spanish international then he could still be a good addition to their squad as Thiago is a great midfielder who would like to play along side Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes.
