Manchester United reportedly add Antonio Candreva to a shortlist of transfer targets, with David Moyes prepared to admit defeat in his summer chase of Antonio Candreva.

Manchester United manager David Moyes is reportedly keeping tabs on Lazio midfielder Antonio Candreva, with hope fading over a summer swoop for Thiago Alcantara.

Moyes had made the Barcelona starlet his top transfer target, but the Spanish youth international is believed to prefer a reunion with Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich.

According to The Expresss the Scot views Candreva as a viable alternative after watching him play for Italy at the Confederations Cup, with the 26-year-old now firmly on United's radar thanks to his impressive showing for the Azzurri.

Candreva has also been linked with a move to Napoli and AC Milan during the close season, with the playmaker currently co-owned by Lazio and Udinese.

Since joining Lazio on loan in 2011 the attacking midfielder has made 49 Serie A appearances, scoring nine goals.

Thiago celebrates his goal for Barcelona with Pedro.
