Transfer News: AC Milan Join Race to Buy Thiago Alcantara

Italian Serie A giants AC Milan are now in the race to sign FC Barcelona star Thiago Alcantara with Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Manchester United already targeting the 22-year old.

Alcantara was believed to have an €80million buyout clause in his contract but due to playing time and a number of other factors, the midfielder is now temporarily available for around €18million.

This has alerted the likes of Pep Guadiola who at Bayern Munich could be interested in his former player and both Manchester clubs are also targeting the 3-time Spanish international.

Alcantara would prove to be a great addition to the Milanese side and would fit in with the likes of Ricardo Montolivo and Nigel De Jong in the middle of the park.

The Rossoneri finished the season in 3rd place but if they are to challenge once more for the title, it means that signing quality is a must for their squad.
