Manchester United have already strengthened their midfield by signing Donny van de Beek but they are also linked with another top midfielder in the form of Thiago Alcantara.

The Spanish international will be out of contract in less than a year and has told Bayern Munich that he wants to leave. Apart from the Red Devils, Liverpool are reportedly looking to get his signing done.

As per an update provided by former Bayern president Uli Hoeness, the 29-year-old has probably agreed terms with Manchester United and Liverpool but the PL duo have not lodged any bid for the La Roja star as yet.

The two arch rivals are perhaps hoping to move late in the window in order to lure Thiago for cheap.

The legendary German told Sport1 :
“Thiago had a great offer with us for four years. A few days later he said that he was looking for a big challenge. Apparently he is in agreement with Liverpool and Manchester United. The clubs have not yet approached Bayern. It’s not a style, they want to blackmail us.”
As per reports going on in the media ( The Athletic – The Independent ), the former Barcelona star could cost around £30million.
Bayern deservedly won the Champions League last month and the Italian born midfielder was consistently brilliant for them. He was simply outstanding in the final against Paris Saint-Germain and initiated the move that led to the winning goal.

The major question, do Manchester United need to sign Thiago Alcantara?

Just to infuriate Livrepool, the idea may seem nice but with the addition of the Spaniard, Solksjaer will have an overcrowded midfield department.

The Norwegian manager has mainly utilized a 4-2-3-1 formation at Old Trafford and the No.10 position is reserved for Bruno Fernandes. So, he has senior players like Fred, McTominay, Matic, Pogba and new signing Van De Beek to fight for the two midfield positions.

In my view, there is no need for Man Utd to further reinforce the midfield department because they have ample quality and depth in the center of the park. Also, they still have not signed anyone to improve their attack this summer and Solskjaer should focus on signing a top winger/striker.
