Owen Hargreaves urges United to sign Thiago Alcantara
The 29-year-old Spanish international is in the final year of his contract with the German champions. He has refused to sign a new deal with the Bavarians and has his heart set on a transfer away, with Liverpool interested. (h/t Evening Standard)
However, Hargreaves has urged United to swoop in before the Merseysiders and snap up the signing of the former Barcelona midfield star. (h/t MEN)
“They (Liverpool) don’t have him (a player like him). On his day, he’s one of the top five midfielders in the world. I think everybody needs him. Man United, Arsenal, anybody would take him.”
Thiago has been linked with a switch to Manchester United before. Prior to joining Bayern Munich from Barcelona in 2013, we did make an attempt to land the Spaniard. (h/t MEN)
During his time in Germany, the 29-year-old has grown into one of the best central midfielders in the game.
While we have a solid midfield contingent, when someone as world-class as Thiago is available, the club should look to sign him, more so considering the fact that he could be available for as little as £30m owing to his contractual situation.

Thiago, during his time in Germany, has won seven Bundesliga titles along with a number of other trophies. His winning mentality and experience would certainly be a huge boost to our squad.
His presence would also do a world of good for youngsters such as Scott McTominay and James Garner, helping them take their game to the next level.
