    Some random account with 100k followers. Seems to just be a congregate of news like Barcastuff and that kind of thing, but i have no idea, doesn't seem like a bull**** account when you go through it. Guess we'll see tonight.

    If this is true and he wants to go back later on i'd expect £15mil would be the deposit

    Please don't go around claiming he's the best thing since sliced bread. He's a good player but you hype him up far too much.

    True, he hasn't scored as much as Hazard so he's probably bad.

    You claim Tiago playing 60% of Barca's game's last season is a wondrous achievement. It isn't.

    So you're saying he got to that level of English in a few weeks? Impressive.

    But in reality (apparently), he went to an English school in Spain so that's why.

    Why are you getting so upset about how much united fans rate a transfer target? :rofl2:

    (He is an incredible player though btw)

    He is a top talent and Barca fans are hating the fact of him leaving, plus he looks to fill a hole in our squad, I respect your opinion of him only being a good player but for me and united fans he is what we need and has talent to become a proper Scholes replacement, even if he doesn't join and goes to Chelsea or Bayern I'll still rate him as he is highly talented and is starting to blossom, you just seem to be so jealous of the fact he is coming to United.

    A lot of Europeans speak fluent English.
    Well it varies from literally 100% in Holland/Sweden to about 40% in Spain. The majority of Spanish imports to the UK didnt speak English when they arrived so who knows. Tevez still aint picked it up FFS.

    Tbf, there is apparently interest from Chelsea. Lucas Moura was coming to United too if I remember correctly. I'd hold your horses until he's holding the shirt.

    That's because Tevez is a **** though, he spent most of his time here whinging and whining about how he can't settle in England and has no friends, instead of learning the language.

    Problem with Thiago is that if he makes it at Utd, he'll probably start angling for a move back to Barca as he enters his peak.

    I'd be happy to have him for 4-5 good years and then want to go back home, I can respect that. It's just the same as the Ronaldo situation really. It'll be hard to find a player that will want to stay at the club forever, there aren't many of them.

    Ditto. Plus we'd make a tidy profit. From what I gather the Thiago deal has been agreed between us & Barca but one or two clubs have also made an offer. Its just up to Thiago now to decide what he wants to do.

    He's not leaving on great terms though is he and he's 22 not 16 and not catalan therefore he is not exactly like cesc in that matter however I could see him wanting to play for pep again.
