Thiago Alcantara

Is this an indication Thiago Alcantara is heading to Manchester United?

Rumours over Thiago Alcantara are persisting, and now the midfielder has added to the speculation.

Whether he entirely realised it or not, the Barcelona man has been captured on video signing the shirt of a Manchester United fan who asked for his autograph.

The video has been posted onto Youtube by the fan who offered the 22-year-old his Nemanja Vidic home kit for the Spaniard to sign.

The user who posted the video, Ameer Haj-Yahia - was asked if he quizzed the midfielder if he would be joining United.

To which he responded: "I haved, he smiled..." adding describing the smile in his view as,"It was a yes."

The short clip has been picked by by Spanish newspaper Sport and posted on their website with analysis:

"The video was posted by that amateur this Thursday through Youtube and always the possibility that would have been recorded at another time. However, some details leave no room for error.

"The United shirt-with the number of Vidic - is one that has worn the Manchester set of this season and the summer dress uniform you saw Thiago is the under 21 has worn during the European Championship in Israel.

"It should be recalled that last summer the Barcelona midfielder could not participate with the team in the London Games after injuring himself in the final of the Copa del Rey against Athletic, so the images correspond to this summer."

Clearly it does not mean he 'is signing for United, but for fans longing to see him wear the shirt - it's better than him refusing to sign it, right?
