Thiago Alcantara: Set to begin pre-season training with Barcelona

The Spain international has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in light of the fact that the player currently has a release clause of €18million.

While Barca have been quiet about the future of the 22-year-old midfielder, spokesman Toni Freixa has confirmed that he will be among the squad when they resume training for the new season.

"We have the players we have and Thiago is one of them," Freixa told Radio Catalunya.

"Pre-season with us begins as scheduled."
