Bayern Munich sporting director Matthias Sammer has played down talk the club's pursuit of Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara is a done deal.
The Bundesliga champions appear to be in pole position to lure the highly rated 22-year-old away from the Nou Camp, despite interest from Manchester United.
Reports earlier this week claimed the player had agreed a four-year contract at the Allianz Arena, but Sammer insists such suggestions are premature.
"Why would we not communicate it if something was signed? No, of course that is not the case," the 45-year-old told German newspaper Bild am Sonntag.
If the transfer did go through, it would see Thiago reunited with his former Barca boss Pep Guardiola.
New Bayern coach Guardiola confirmed on Thursday that Thiago, who came to the fore in Spain's triumphant European U21 Championship campaign with several fine performances including a stunning hat-trick in the final against Italy, was his number one transfer target this summer.
When asked at a press conference at the Bayern training camp if he was interested in Thiago, the 42-year-old said: "Yes.
"I don't know what's going to happen. We have to wait. I know him very, very well. He is a super, super player. He can play in three, four or five positions."
When asked about other transfers, Guardiola added: "It is either Thiago or nothing."
Let people rant for a bit. Bear in mind, it seems highly unlikely that Utd would manage to screw this up if it had been as straightforward as it would seem. So this idea we stalled, didn't move quick enough etc isn't the case here IMO. It's happened a number of times in the past but this isn't one of them.
Preppy CUNT really is living up to his name, isn't he?
Not that angry, just resigned to it. Of course we didn't get the shining star of the Spanish U-21s side. Of course we aren't going to get anyone. Rooney can do a shift in midfield, it'll be fine.
Fuck optimism. Fuck Spaniards. I was stupid to hvae my mind changed over this. Hope the little shit hardly gets a game, and gets injured when he does play, and then doesn't play in the World Cup? Bitter? No, just disgusted.
We win together, lose together. We celebrate triumph and endure defeat together. Losses are softened and victories sweetened because we do them together. One team. One religion. One love.

cjjagzmoni: Pogba is a good lad minus the showboating..I think at Juventus he had Older players like Pirlo,Chiellini,Marchisio,Bonucci who shout and screams at him so he was more serious at Juve ,We dont have those type of leaders at United to caution him.
