    Really strong rumours suggesting Thiago has signed with us.

    Just waiting for a respectable source to report it.
    Has Balague confirmed this?

    I think the thing going around was vidic joining him at the press conference.

    Zaha, Varela, new staff, living up to SAF will all be talked about before we get any actual juicy info
    I think that's all we'll hear about tomorrow ... United are smart enough to drag these things out to create a buzz and if there are any potential signings they'll probably reveal them seperately. It's an excuse for another press conference and more public attention which gets their precious sponsor logos out there to more eyes and gives them a stronger bargaining position.

    Everyone seems to have forgotten about Zaha in the whole Fergie/Moyes/Rooney/Ronaldo/Thiago kerfuffle lately.

    The press conference will be shown from 3:45pm tomorrow on MUTV for anyone who has nothing better to do.

    I wonder if Alex Ferguson will be there as a club ambassador tomorrow or if he'll stay away to avoid causing any media furore? I think the latter option is sensible, we really need Moyes to be given the space to do his own thing without Fergie's new role causing them to be seen together too often. I'm sure Bobby Charlton will be there being overpaid to give the predetermined corporate opinion anyway, he'd turn up for the opening of an envelope if he thought someone was listening.

    On another note, Jack Crompton sadly passed away today. Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

    You speak as if the transfer window has 4 days to go rather than it only being open for 4 days...

    Nah, would be amazed if he was there also, no chance. Wouldn't want to take away Moyes' shine and in general, I don't think he'll be at OT for a while yet. Maybe for one of the European games or Carling Cup match at home. He'll be down south tomorrow watching his Scottish boi, Andy Murray.

    Hope he stays, could be a good year for him. He's not even terrible, just inconsistent. Could be a new dawn for him under Moyes. **** his agent

    Barcelona sources have told Sky Sports that they have yet to receive an official approach for Thiago Alcantara. The future of the 22-year-old remains far from certain with Manchester United and Bayern Munich both closely linked with the midfielder, who reportedly wants to leave the Camp Nou.

    It looks like Thiago doesn't want to leave Barca but he is just using us to increase his power at Barca, we haven't persuaded Thiago to come and therefore we haven't made an official approach, this transfer saga seems all to familiar .

    Naaa lads.

    Buyout clause means that 'offers' in the traditional sense aren't made. €18 mill will trigger the clause, so the salient issue is establishing personal interest, and then terms with the player.

    Barca stating that 'they have received no offers for Thiago' is a total non sequitur. If Thiago wants to leave, there's little Barca can do about it.

    He's on his holidays and has no club commitments until the 14th or 15th of July, so he's probably taking his time to make his decision. He's possibly leaving the biggest club in the world, for whom he's dreamt of playing, and is perhaps waiting for Barca to place faith in him and give him a contract renewal with provisions on playing time etc. maybe even a bit more cash.

    I'm still confident. But we should be patient, If we have a chance of getting him we should take out time and make it happen. We can panic if/when he pledges his commitment to Barca. Then we'll probably hear more about Strootman etc.

    For now, the signs are good!

    To be fair it does say 'official approach' which could mean anything and it doesn't necessarily mean that United haven't triggered the clause or even made a bid for him.
