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

thiago 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.

What do you think? Does Manchester United have any hope in trying to sign Thiago, or is it a lost cause? Share your opinion in the comments section below.

The Nightly Soccer Report (and Daily Soccer Report) returns after a brief break. I’ve been on vacation in the Bahamas since Monday, sailing the western Caribbean and, when I had a chance, watching the Confederations Cup and u-21 European Championship on the high seas. Normal service resumes with the Soccer Report from now on!

Here are tonight’s world soccer news headlines:

Premier League

International soccer

Championship

Ligue Un

NASL

The Nightly Soccer Report is tomorrow’s news today. It’s often tomorrow morning’s worldwide newspaper headlines that are published the night before. We do all the work for you, combing the Internet and aggregating the news for you. Read The Nightly Soccer Report on World Soccer Talk every night before bed, so you can stay on top of all the news that matters.
