Manchester United manager turned down Thiago

To add to the farce that was Manchester United’s transfer window, it has been reported that David Moyes turned down the opportunity to sign Thiago earlier this summer.

Thiago’s father, Mazinho, had confirmed that the player was close to joining United, despite United’s claims that Cesc Fabregas had always been their priority signing.

However, it has been revealed that Bayern Munich made a move for the young star after Moyes decided he wasn’t prepared to sign a player he had seen so little of.

United had been watching the player for three years and had planned on taking advantage of his generous release clause this summer. However, with Moyes unsure about the signing, the club supported him and didn’t put in a bid.

Fans of the champions will be left fuming that Moyes let such a great opportunity to pass him by, particularly when they only went to sign Marouane Fellaini.

    If this is true then it shows how much on the ball Moyes is. He hadn’t seen much of Thiago – scandalous. What type of manager is he if he hasn’t seen players before or seen very little. Didn’t he have access to files and films of Thiago United must have? Smack of a small club mentality he picked up at Everton – Everton would not have been in the running to sign Thiago so I know little about him.
    After the farce of this transfer window and the only signing of Falainni for £4M more than what we could have got him for in July I only hope this is not what United have got to come.

    This is garbage – story rehashed just to add spice. I have come to realise that the media is full of shit based on poor journalistic standard.
