Alcantara cools down United link

THIAGO-ALCANTARALONDON, England, May 29- Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara has refused to be drawn on rumours that Manchester United are considering a summer move for his services.

The Red Devils have been linked with a swoop for the 22-year-old, but he has insisted that he will not consider his future until after the upcoming Under-21 European Championship.

“I just live my life and I am very happy,” the Spain international told reporters.

“I enjoy it in Barcelona because I have lived through some great times but we will see what happens after the Euros.

“Any player is used to living with rumours about him and they just cannot affect you.”

Thiago’s buy-out clause at Camp Nou is understood to have dropped from €90million to €18million after he failed to play 30 minutes or more in 60 per cent of Barca’s games this season.

United’s interest prompted goalkeeper David de Gea to state that he would like his Spain Under-21 team-mate to join him at Old Trafford, but Thiago brushed off the comments.

“All players want the best players in their team. I could say I hope that he comes to Barca in the same way he says things about me,” he added.

“I just think he was having a bit of fun and not too much should be read into it.”
