It’s not much of an update as far as Manchester United are concern, but it’s interesting to hear Liverpool are still ion talks with the Bundesliga club over Thiago.
He’s a midfielder who would improve any side but I would be surprised if United signed Thiago as well as Donny van de Beek. Two midfielders when there’s still a centre-back and right-winger needed…
I’m not against the idea of signing Thiago and Van de Beek. We should because it would go a long way towards strengthening the squad, but this is Manchester United owned by the Glazers. We are never going to go into a transfer market and do business like we could.
We’ll keep an eye out for any more updates on Thiago’s future. He’s a player I’d like to see in the Premier League — obviously not at Liverpool or City.
