The latest United transfer saga has finally drawn to a close and like the Wesley Sneijder, Lucas Moura and Eden Hazard ones of previous seasons, it ended with a player posing in the shirt of one of our rivals.

Thiago Alcantara’s move to Bayern Munich wasn’t too bitter a pill to swallow for many Reds, after all he is joining his old manager Pep Guardiola at the Allianz Arena, it’s just a crying shame many of us had been duped into believing the young midfielder was a certainty to join the Reds.

Seeing Thiago posing in a Bayern Munich shirt on twitter isn’t heart breaking, it’s just a bit disappointing.
