Thiago Alcantara wants a guarantee that he will play regularly next season for whoever he ends up playing for, Marca reports.

The midfielder is close to joining Manchester United, with the Red Devils set to pay £15 million for the 22 year old.

Barcelona have tried their best to keep Thiago at the Nou Camp but the midfielder wants to move on knowing that he if he were to stay at Barcelona next season, he is unlikely to play anymore games than he did during the clubs last campaign.

Despite being one of the most highly rated young players in Europe at the moment, Thiago barely played for Barcelona last season, with competition for places in the clubs midfield fierce.

He knows that won’t change this season and feels he will get more game time elsewhere but wants it written into his contract that he should play regularly at his new club.

Manchester United are front-runners for the midfielders signature and manager David Moyes has told Thiago that he will be a first team regular at Old Trafford but can’t give the midfielder anymore guarantees.

Thiago is set to make a decision on his future soon while Moyes is set to have his first press conference as United boss on Friday afternoon, where he will surely be asked about Thiago.
