Manchester United boss David Moyes is tightlipped on their move for Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara.

Thiago is available at a cut-price £17million as he did not feature in the number of first-team games stated in his Barca contract and it is claimed will sign a five-year deal to become Moyes' first significant capture since replacing Sir Alex Ferguson.

"Manchester United will always be close to the best players," Moyes told MUTV.

"I will inform the supporters as much as I can.

"Some things are confidential but I am doing everything I possibly can to strengthen the current English champions."
