It was the much discussed rumour of last summer, that Thiago Alcantara would be joining Manchester United after an impressive Euro under-21s Championship with Spain.
But, latest revelations released today by the BBC, state that it was Ryan Giggs who didn’t think that Thiago Alcantara was a Manchester United player. It was thought through-out the fans, that it was David Moyes who called off the transfer.
Listen to the interview below:
Thiago Alcantara then went on to join Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich, who’s son is Thiago’s agent.
If the new information is true, then Ryan Giggs has had much of a say in Manchester United’s transfer policy for longer than we realise. But, what were his thoughts on the transfer of Marouane Fellaini?
