Man Utd ponder bid for Barcelona midfielder Thiago

Manchester United are eyeing Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara.

The Daily Mail says United have admired him for some time with Martin Ferguson understood to be a big fan.

If they hit any problems in their pursuit of Tottenham star Luka Modric they will have Alcantara in mind.

He is not so much a playmaker as Modric but he can play equally well in the Serge Busquets pivot role or as an attacking midfielder. If Milan's move progresses expect United to ask for a price.
