Barcelona in the dark over Thiago Alcantara's intentions.

It's understood the midfielder has agreed personal terms with Manchester United, but he is yet to inform Barca of his intentions, says AS.

United have no need to haggle over a price with Barca and will simply need to meet Thiago's €18 million buyout clause this month. It jumps to €90 million in August.

Barca insiders believe the delays from the Thiago camp are due to the midfielder waiting for Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich to declare their interest.
