Manchester United favourites to sign Barcelona star

FC Barcelona wing-back, Dani Alves, is set to depart the Catalan club this summer when his contract expires and Manchester United are now the frontrunners to secure his services after Paris Saint-Germain have dropped out of the running according to the Daily Express.

Paris Saint-Germain’s interest in signing the Brazil star has been brought to an end, according to club chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

“PSG were interested in Alves for a long time, but we aren’t anymore,” he told L’Equipe.

Manchester United are on the hunt for another full-back and are also interested in signing Southampton’s Nathaniel Clyne.

Dani Alves, 31, would be a costly addition to the side, with United apparently willing to offer him in excess of £150,000-a-week.

Alves, who has been at Barcelona for seven years, has a wealth of experience. He has won some of football’s most prestigious accolades, including two Champions League and four La Liga titles.

Louis Van Gaal is keen to bring in another right-back as Rafael has just over a year remaining on his current deal and has not featured enough for the Red Devils this season, after struggling with injuries.

Would Dani Alves be a good signing for Manchester United this summer?
