Barcelona midfielder Thiago rejects shock Real Madrid approach to stay clear for Man Utd

Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara has rejected an approach from Real Madrid.

Real president Florentino Perez was dazzled by Thiago's performance at the U21 Euros with Spain and made a shock attempt for the midfielder, says Sport.

However, Thiago refused to consider the option, with his representatives making it clear to Perez he regarded it as too controversial a step for him.

The midfielder remains hopeful of signing for Manchester United in the coming days.
