Man Utd on brink of signing Barcelona's Thiago

Manchester United are in advanced talks for Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara.

The Daily Mail says United are on the verge of signing Barcelona midfield star Thiago in a £17million deal.

The Premier League champions have stolen a march on rivals Manchester City by agreeing personal terms of £5m-a-year with Thiago, 22, and his father Mazinho.

They still have to finalise a deal with Barcelona and sources say that it is unlikely there will be any announcement on Friday, but discussions between the two clubs will continue over the weekend.
