Barca draw up Thiago alternatives

Barcelona have reportedly drawn up a list of potential candidates to target this summer, if Thiago Alcantara does leave.

The 22-year-old is seen as on the verge of agreeing a deal to join Manchester United this transfer window at a cut-price €18m.

If the midfielder does leave, then Mundo Deportivo say that Barca will run through a list of ideal replacements.

Beyond promoting Sergi Roberto to an increased role in the first team, it is believed that the Catalans would consider a move for Ajax’s Christian Eriksen, Athletic Bilbao’s Ander Herrera, Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere, Borussia Dortmund’s Ilkay Gundogan, or Juan Mata of Chelsea or Borja Valero of Fiorentina.
