Manchester United after signing of Bruno Fernandes and the rejuvenation of Paul Pogba means that the 20-times English champions have no need for another creative playmaker, however, Owen Hargreaves is desperate for them to make a switch for Thiago Alcantara.
The Manchester Evening News suggested that on these comments, and they confirmed that the Merseyside Reds had been strongly linked with the German champions key man, and he is believed to be valued at £30m.
However, Hargreaves has urged his former team, Man United to swoop in before Liverpool and snap up the securing his services.
The report looked at his comments on BT Sport, where he had this to say about the Bayern star:
“They (Liverpool) don’t have him (a player like him). On his day, he’s one of the top five midfielders in the world.”
“At the Bridge, we were blown away by him. As good as Liverpool are, he walks into their starting XI.”
“I think everybody needs him. Man United, Arsenal, anybody would take him. He’s one of those players, if you played with him, you’d be blown away by how good he is. The only issue he’s had is injuries. He’s had big injuries at Bayern.”
The idea of Fernandes, Paul Pogba, Fernandes and Thiago in the same midfield is incredible and they would be a threat to any team as all of them are capable to create chances all day long.
