But the true "pearl" on offer is FC Barcelona & Spanish U-21 International midfielder THIAGO Alcantara who scored a Hat-trick in the final & was outstanding all tournament. The youngster is available until the 31st of July for 18M€, a true bargain price, which is his contract release clause after not reaching the playing time quota agreed in his contract with FC Barcelona this season. The 22 year old player has Cesc Fabregas, Andres Iniesta & Xavi Hernandez ahead of him for the midfield position.

The player wants playing time to be able to keeping evolving & growing as a Football Player & it is speculated that the player ( along with his representative the brother of Pep Guardiola & his father ex-Brazilian World Cup Champ Mazinho ) have decided to make a move next season to "new lands".

Real Madrid is also speculated but seems not willing to enter into hostilities with Barça apart from their own "midfield" overload of players in their squad.

FC Barcelona will attempt to convince the player to stay, because apart from retaining a class promise & move with a 18M€ price tag would be seen as scandalous by Barça fans. However, Football observers close to the players "inner circle" comment that the player has decided to move & may have already an agreement - handshake - with Manchester United.
