Man City Target Barcelona Midfielder Thiago Alcantara

Transfer News: Manchester City are interested in Barcelona and Spanish international Thiago Alcantara who has been put up for sale by the Catalans.

Manchester City chiefs Txiki Begiristain and Ferran Soriano are keen on the man who has not featured very heavily this season but they liked what they saw when they were at Barcelona.

Barcelona have placed a £20m price tag on the 22 year old with City being able to make that payment without any worries.

Alcantara has made just 14 starts this season with the likes of Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Cecsc Fabregas and Sergio Busquets all main stayers in the Barca line-up.
