Thiago Alcántara

at £28m think we should be in for Thiago- 

I know he doesn't fit current younger profile but if going ahead / signing Sancho, can't see UTD having the budget for significant further midfield signings (Niguez / Ndidi etc. won't come cheap)

Thiago would make sense

If he wasn't injury prone he'd be a good replacement for Pogba should he leave, which he almost certainly won't be for at least another season. Thiago would be the ultimate luxury signing when we have several other more important areas to address first. 

Seeing him at Liverpool would be depressing though.

think he'd be decent back for Matic as well-  more creative/eye for a pass than current other options

wasn't aware he was injury prone though

Is he gonna do the CDM dirty work? 

he's a central- / defensive midfielder isn't he?   Fck knows- I haven't watched him enough if I'm honest.  I go by whoscored stats 😂

Although what I have seen of Thiago I like - at £20-30m would seem like a decent deal to me?

Wanted him years ago - I’d actually rather we went for someone younger like Van De Beek 

If we must - I’d be more comfortable closer to £20m than £30m as it would represent better value.

yeah I'd prefer Van De Beek as well- (or Niguez/Ndidi) but none of them will come cheap?   Think after Sancho (which seems likely) there will be limited funds left to play with-   why I think Thiago around about £20-30m could be good option;

They’re saying £40m for VDB - he’s about 22 so it makes longer-term sense
