Now the denial starts….
With news that Thiago Alcantara is heading to Bayern Munich, United boss David Moyes has insisted that the club’s targets are still within reach.
Speaking at United’s tour in Bangkok Moyes was confident the Red’s could get the players they want:
“We’re on with targets that we are chasing,”
“There are people we are actively chasing and, at this moment in time, we’re happy with how things are going.”
Asked whether Thiago was a target Moyes replied: “I never said at any time that he was.”
It seems highly unlikely that after so many reports United were chasing Thiago, it transpires we didn’t even make any inquiries. As for other targets, the most obvious one would seem to be Leighton Baines with United reportedly willing to up their initial £12 million bid.
