Manchester United in Battle to Prise Thiago From Barcelona: Nightly Soccer Report

Manchester United are in a tussle to try to sign Thiago Alcântara from Barcelona after the midfielder has been one of the stars of the u-21 European Championship tournament.

David Moyes is reportedly interested in triggering the £17million release clause to try to make Thiago his first major signing of the summer. However, Thiago is believed to be interested in staying with Barcelona if he can get more first time team action.
