VIDEO: Manchester United £21.6m summer target scores bicycle kick

Thiago Alcantara enjoyed his best moment in a Bayern Munich shirt since signing.

Injury problems blighted the early part of Thiago Alcantara's Bayern Munich adventure, but he appears to be getting better and better.

He scored a sensational last gasp winner against Stuttgart last night to seal a 2-1 victory, in a Bundesliga game the champions had been losing until equalising with 15 minutes to go.

The goal was Thiago's first in the Bundesliga, and it will not be one he forgets, and it topped off the assist he made for Claudio Pizarro's equaliser.

The Spaniard was heavily linked with signing for Manchester United when he left Barcelona in the summer, and he is a central midfielder the Red Devils could dearly do with even now.

His spectacular goal has not done anything to ease the feeling Manchester United missed out on a gem.
