The red-top press is intimating that Sir Alex Ferguson may not be finished when it comes to the summer spending spree.

The inference being that Sir Alex is keen to lure the young Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara to Old Trafford.

Thiago, who scored a stunning goal as Spain emerged victorious form the recent European U21 Championships, is supposedly the target of a £15 million bid from United.

But the deal is a little complicated with Barcelona reluctant to lose the player for good even though he isn`t guaranteed a midfield start in their talented team.

There`s also the small matter of the player being mentioned in the same breath as being part of the Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona rumours, plus there`s also talk of Bolton Wanderers being involved in some sort of deal whereby he`ll go to the Reebok Stadium on loan for the season.

But perhaps the biggest stumbling block is that Barcelona want a ‘buy-back` clause inserted in any possible purchase!

I get the impression that we may dip out on this one and the expression – what you get isn`t what you always want – springs to mind (but we could be wrong!)
