Man United are not leaving anything to chance in their bid to revamp the team as they are now making moves to hijack Liverpool deal for Bayern Munich star Thiago Alcantara, according to reports.

Thiago Alcantara has a year left in his contract with the German Bundesliga outfit but he is keen to leave this summer window and the club is not ready to tie him down if the right offer comes knocking.

The 29-year-old has been heavily linked with English Premier League champions Liverpool with claims that they are set to finalize the deal but there seems to be some delay which the Red Devils will capitalize on to convince the player of a move to the Old Trafford.

Norwegian journalist Fredrik Filtvedt is now claiming that the Red Devils are now trying to poach him for a move to the Old Trafford. It will be recalled that Man United made a move for Thiago Alcantara in 2013 when he was to leave Barcelona but he dumped the club for Bayern Munich.

However, it is expected to be a big week for both clubs with the Red Devils also making moves to complete one major signing this summer transfer window.
