Man Utd edge closer to Thiago as Dad gives move thumbs up

Manchester United are being encouraged in their bid for Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara. The Mirror says Alcantara's influential ex-Brazil international dad Mazinho thinks he should join United ahead of City, Bayern Munich and latecomers Chelsea this week.

And the Spain Under-21 skipper's gifted young brother Rafinha is also heading for the Premier League from Barca on loan - making a move to England more appealing.

Now the plan is for the family to relocate to the north-west, where they can all live together.
