Barca meanwhile have issued a statement that there has been no bid for Thiago and expect him at pre-season training! Somewhere in the midst of all this, Thiago adds confusion to the process by tweeting "I love Barcelona" whilst posting a picture of him relaxing poolside with brother Rafinha. United fans remain on tenterhooks waiting for developments.
Alternatively, David Moyes could be baulking at the playing demands that Thiago is making, though this is doubtful giving Uniteds aching need to add quality & depth to their midfield options. More so in light of the fact that Paul Pogba has shown his prowess with regular playing time, since arriving at newly crowned Scudetto champions Juventus.
Moyes could be baulking at Thiago's wage demands. This is also doubful as United perceivably would be taking advantage of paying such a small transfer fee (£17.5M) for such a hot prospect. Remember Rooney cost £25M.
In weighing up the evidence, the question still remains; Why is Prince Thiago dragging his heels with the United switch?
