According to Athletic reporter Daniel Taylor, when Ferguson left office, he wanted to help Moyes sign Bayern midfielder Thiago, but Moyes rejected Ferguson's offer.
According to many media reports, Bayern midfielder Thiago is now infinitely close to joining Liverpool. However, reporter Taylor revealed that this extremely talented player was very close to being signed by Liverpool's arch-rival Manchester United. He said that before Ferguson left his post in 2013, he had inspected Thiago in detail. Manchester United have spent several years observing his game and have negotiated "everything". Ferguson wanted to give this signing as a "goodbye gift" to Manchester United and Moyes. But what is surprising is that Moyes canceled the transfer, and he thinks he does not know enough about the player.
