Man Utd table £15M bid for Barcelona starlet Thiago

Manchester United have made an offer for Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara.

The Mirror says Sir Alex Ferguson has made a £15million offer for Barcelona youngster Thiago.

The Manchester United boss wants the star of Spain's European Championship Under-21 side in an outright cash deal - but Barca are reluctant to sell to a ­Champions League rival.

United's offer is bigger than any other interested club and Fergie made his move before Thiago's stunning 45-yard free-kick strike in the Euro final at the weekend.

Barca would like to farm the midfield prodigy out to a Premier League club, but want a buy-back clause, which United will not agree to.
