Manchester United have made an offer for Spanish starlet Thiago Alcantara, according to reports.

The U21 international scored the second goal in his nation's 2-0 European Championship final victory over Switzerland on Saturday, making the British public aware of his talents with the 40-yard strike.

Previously linked with a move to Arsenal as part of a deal to bring Cesc Fabregas to Spain, the Barcelona midfielder is now on the radar of the Red Devils.

It's claimed in the Daily Mirror that Manchester United have made a £15 million bid for the 20-year-old, who has made 17 senior appearances for Pep Guardiola's side in his career thus far.

Sir Alex Ferguson has already invested in players this summer, bringing Phil Jones and Ashley Young to Old Trafford in June. David de Gea is also poised to make a Manchester United switch, with the Scot continuing to invest in young talent.


Thiago would be in a similar mould, and is the latest midfielder to appear on the Manchester United radar following links with Wesley Sneijder and Luka Modric.

The son of the former Brazilian footballer Mazinho, first team football is thought to be key to Thiago and Manchester United will need to offer the youngster more playing time if they are to secure the Spaniard's signature as a possible Paul Scholes replacement.
