Manchester United line-up Lazio star Antonio Candreva if Thiago Alcantara move fails
Manchester United have lined up Italy midfielder Antonio Candreva as a target if their protracted efforts to bring Thiago Alcantara to the club fall through.
The Lazio man is the next name down on David Moyes’ lists, according to reports in the Daily Express.
Thiago had appeared certain to move to Old Trafford this summer. But recent reports suggest that the Premier League champions could now lose out to Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich in the race for the 22-year-old’s signature.
If that proves to be the case, United will move for Candreva, who impressed during the recent Confederations Cup tournament.
Lazio, Manchester City and Spurs have also been linked with Candreva.
