Manchester United are watching Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara and remain keen on Tottenham's Luka Modric, reports the Daily Mail.

The 21-year-old is understood to be growing frustrated at his lack of first-team opportunities at Camp Nou, and after the departure of Pep Guardiola is considering his future in Spain.

Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to offer Thiago the chance to ply his trade at Old Trafford, as he seeks to strengthen his midfield department this summer.

United have been linked with a number of different players, with Spurs' Croatian playmaker Modric regularly touted as a target to add creativity to the Premier League giants.

The Spaniard is also a viable option, though, but with a valuation of around £21million will not come to England cheaply.

AC Milan have made their interest in Alcantara clear, and the Serie A giants could rival United's attempt to sign the Barca starlet.
