    Really? As far as all the other papers saying Thiago is close to signing? :confused:
    It sells papers, remember the Sneijder transfer.

    Independent say Thiago is very close to signing for us, the newspapers are just rehashing old bits of news I think.

    Aparently the pic was taken at some Futsal competition.
    Dunno but I'm not to confident of him signing anymore, how many times has this happened where players use other clubs interest to get better contracts.

    Would Strootman and Baines really improve the team? Strootman seemed very overrated from what i saw of him at the U21's this summer, and dutch people i spoke to feel the same. Baines would cost in the region of 13-18m which would be far too expensive when Evra's good for one more season. Thiago would be the ideal signing and i can see the appeal of Lewandowski if Rooney goes, but not the other two.

    Sportwitness who are decent on twitter and such at not speaking bull**** and calling out stupid rumours etc. Posted this about recent Sport article/s and Moyes' involvement in the potential transfer

    There are many articles in both England and Spain today the possibility of Thiago moving to Manchester United, in Spain they mainly cover the wages the player would be getting if he moved and there are some claims he's been offered just over €4m a year and others that it's more like €6m, which the player is stated as wanting. If Thiago does eventually leave then the Barcelona press will no doubt label him as greedy, because those kind of figures aren't thrown around for young La Masia products at the Camp Nou.

    However, Sport have a big article on how Moyes sees Thiago at his new Manchester United and reckon they know what was said between the new man in charge at Old Trafford and Mazinho, Thiago's father. They say, at least in this article, that it wasn't money which convinced Mazinho or a guarantee of first team football, or any specific explanation of him leading the team forward, it was simply a conversation about Mikel Arteta.

    Moyes is said to have told Mazinho 'I want him to be like the Arteta I had at Everton', obviously that doesn't mean winning nothing and getting no international recognition before a cut-price move to Arsenal, but more of an explanation of the role Moyes sees Thiago taking.

    Mazinho was by all accounts impressed by this and sees how Moyes helped the career of Arteta and mould him into the protagonist of Everton's midfield. Being that at Manchester Untied would be on a higher level completely and that's where the attraction lies for Mazinho and his son. They know Moyes understands the player and his role, and the Arteta situation has given them extra confidence that the new Manchester United manager knows what he's doing when it comes to Spanish players of that type,

    Sport say that Moyes has played a huge role in the effort to convince Mazinho and Thiago, and will be a big part of the reason he joins, if the deal is completed. The newspaper concede, in this one article (they'll probably change their minds if the move happens), that Thiago isn't moving for money, although Manchester United are offering more than Barcelona would. They say it's the promise of a prominent role and the explanation Moyes has put across about Thiago being his new Arteta. They label the chance to be the protagonist of Manchester United's midfield 'priceless'.

    I think as long as Moyes talks to him and goes along the route of playing for WC14 and his role in making Arteta the player he was before his Arsenal move. I reckon Moyes really would start him most games

    Basically he said United had been ringing around, talking to people who know him to find out what he is like etc. (i presume to find out if he is particularly arrogant etc)

    Don't really get why, we've apparently been interested for a good two years so you would think we would have a clue what he is like or what people think of him etc

    Hes such a poacher, probably has one of the best international records in world football. Cant think of any strikers who score more than 2 in every 3 games for their countries.

    Yup, better than Messi internationally. He's a guy nobody can hate no matter who you support.
