PICTURE: De Gea and Thiago celebrate winning U21 European title

by Sam Peoples

de-gea-thiago-euro-u21Spain comfortably overcame Italy 4-2 in tonight’s U21 European Championship final to retain the title they won back in 2011.

It was a victory inspired by Thiago Alcantara’s textbook hat-trick of a header, penalty and left foot strike and continued Spain’s dominance of global football.

David De Gea conceded his first two goals of the tournament against Italy but was one of Spain’s best players in Israel. He cemeted his place as the Premier League’s best goalkeeper and after a fine competition, he has set his sight on becoming the worlds best. 

After the full time whistle, De Gea and Thiago celebrated their triumph but focus will now turn to the future of Thiago amidst one of the biggest summer transfer stories.

De Gea has already had a few words in Thiago’s ear and United fans will be hoping he can have a few more. The 22-year-old Barcelona midfielder is looking at offers from two Premier League clubs, one believed to be United, after his release clause was dropped to €18 million due to a lack of first team appearances.

Against Italy, Thiago was outstanding and Barcelona will certainly try and keep him in Catalonia but with the 2014 World Cup coming up, he is believed to be keen for first team action to earn a place in the squad.

Come on De Gea, nudge him in the right direction.
