It was earlier expected that it would be a free ride for Liverpool as they were the only club showing real interest in the midfielder but that has since changed and it has been confirmed by a trusted transfer journalist, Jan Aage Fjortoft.
Jan Aage Fjortoft, while speaking on ESPN stated that it is very true that the Red Devils are desperate to sign the Bayern Munich midfielder because they are still in the market looking out for available qualities. He added that everyone thought Thiago Alcantara will be heading Liverpool but things can change.
For Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, it is a case of building the team and adding fresh legs with this summer transfer window, the reason why he has been busy in the market, talking to a number of players.
