Manchester United are the number one candidates to prise Thiago Alcántara from Barcelona.

AS has learned that the Premier League champions have made contact with the player’s entourage to draw up details of the contract they will offer him, which will include a succulent increase in earnings as well as a promise from Manchester United manager David Moyes that he will be one of the first names in the starting line-up as soon as the new season kicks off.

United are believed to be ready to offer him the same amount of money that Andrés Iniesta and Xavi earn at Barcelona.

United have just under six weeks to finalise personal terms with the player before his buy-out clause rises from 18 million euros to 90 million on 1 August.
