PICTURE: 'See you in Manchester' message for Thiago

Thiago Alcantara

David De Gea may have left a message for Thiago which is very encouraging for Manchester United fans.

Thiago continues to be linked with a high profile, big money move to Manchester United and following David De Gea’s possible recent antics, those rumours will now pick up pace.

Thiago’s hat-trick in the Under-21 European Championship final saw him take home the match ball and De Gea seems to have written ‘see you in Manchester’ as his message, after teammates signed the ball congratulating him.

That means two things; it’s either a joke on the part of De Gea as the pair are likely to have discussed the Manchester United rumours during the tournament or it’s a slip on the part of United’s goalkeeper that the club have talks lined up with the Barcelona youngster.

Judging from his comments this morning, it's the former - Unless he's bluffing...

Make of it what you will but it’s clear United can use De Gea as a tool to get after Thiago but also to rely on when it comes to potential deals which could fall in their favour.
