EXCLUSIVE: “David De Gea told me Thiago is coming to United”

by Sam Peoples

thiag-fan-shirtThiago Alcantara is the talk of the town right now as a potential move to Manchester United grows increasingly louder with continued speculation linking him to Old Trafford.

On Wednesday, eagle eyed fans spotted that the message ‘See you in Manchester’ was scribbled on his hat-trick ball (potentially by De Gea) from the U21 final.

And now one fan, Fadi Azem, got Thiago to sign a United shirt while still out in Spain with the U21s.

So, The Peoples Person asked him just how he managed to get the 22-year-old to sign the shirt and talked about what he said.

Where did you get Thiago to sign the shirt?

I live in a place that is just 15 minutes from the hotel the Spain squad was staying in. I went to the hotel to see Thiago and De Gea. There was a security entrance but my friend works there and he let me in the back door.

Did you ask Thiago if he was joining Manchester United?

I asked him if he was going to be joining and told him that I would refresh all the sports sites every hour to find out if he had signed for United yet.

He was very happy, smiled at me and thanked me for telling him.

Did you ask De Gea any questions?

I told De Gea to keep telling Thiago to come to United. “He will, don’t worry”, was what he said back to me.
