Manchester United Ready To Overtake Liverpool’s bid For Thiago Alcantara. Manchester United have reportedly made contact with Thiago Alcantara’s adviser as they look to beat Liverpool to the signing of the Bayern Munich midfielder.
According to the German outlet Bild report, United has not made an offer for the Spaniard, but there has been contact between the club and the player’s representatives.
However, Liverpool has been viewed as favorites to land the 29-year-old after he told Bayern he would be leaving following their Champions League success in Lisbon last month.
But United, despite the imminent £40million arrival of Dutchman Donny van de Beek, has shown interest in the former Barcelona man.
Meanwhile, Bayern has set a £29m price tag on Thiago, a figure Liverpool or United are yet to meet.
Speeaking with Welt Am Sonntag, Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says “We are expecting an offer from another club in the next few days. He told us that at the end of his career, he would like to try something new”.
