With Paul Scholes' retirement confirmed, David Moyes will be looking to strengthen Manchester United's midfield as a matter of priority during the summer.
Barcelona's Thiago Alcantara has struggled under a lack of opportunities at the La Liga side and was linked with a move to Old Trafford back in March, according to The Daily Mail. Such reports have intensified recently, with Goal.com suggesting the English club could be tempted into luring the £15 million player away from the Camp Nou.
The stylish midfielder would be an excellent addition to the Premier League champions, as detailed by B/R's Sam Tighe right here. He has made just 15 starts in all competitions across the last year and will feel the need to be playing more regularly with the 2014 World Cup approaching.
Thiago's arrival could potentially upset the likes of Tom Cleverley, who will undoubtedly lose game time if a deal is struck. Could Thiago be set to join Michael Carrick in the United midfield? What a clash of styles that would be.
Which transfers do you think will come true? Let me know in the comments section and be sure to follow me on Twitter right here:
