Fabregas is not the only Barcelona midfielder that Manchester United are considering.
The Daily Mirror have also reported that the Red Devils have made an €18 million bid for Thiago Alcantara, who is currently impressing at the Euro U21 Championship with Spain.
While Barcelona see Thiago as a key part of their future, the situation is complicated by a clause in his contract, which has seen his fee for release reduced from €90 million to €18 million due to insufficient playing time last season (via Marca).
Thus, if Thiago were to decide to look for more opportunities elsewhere, it would be a monumental failure on the part of Barcelona's management.
Last month, Jordi Roura claimed (via Goal.com) that it "is not our job to bear in mind the players' contracts." He was horribly wrong.
Actually, that is precisely part of a manager's job.
The player himself nonchalantly said he will "see what happens" after the Euro U21 Championship wraps up in Israel (via Goal.com).
This is definitely one to follow with bated breath.
What do you think Barca should do with Cesc and Thiago? Who would you sign at the back?
