Barca Prince decides on European Champions

11 July 2013 09:55
Spanish reports have caused disappointment this morning.

United look set to be cast aside in vying for the affections of the Barcelona midfield Prince Thiago Alcantara.  Bayern Munich, the European champions, have entered the fray for his signature. They also have the Guardiola factor, a fact not lost on Alcantara, who will be well acquainted with Guardiola and his methods from the famed ‘La Masia’ academy at Barcelona.

It was widely believed the midfield prodigy had United earmarked as a means to cementing his place in Spain’s squad at next year's World Cup.

However, as suspected here on ManchesterUnited Mad two days ago, Alcantara was dragging his heels with the purported Old Trafford switch. Spanish reports now say that he has opted to join the Champions League winners instead. 

I hear a collective sigh of disappointment from United Fans
