NLS Transfer Alert: Manchester United & Liverpool At Alert For Barcelona’s Dani Alves
Barcelona’s Dani Alves is a transfer target for Manchester United and Liverpool, according to reports.
The Brazil star, aged 31, is out of contract in the summer and does not seem likely to extend his stay at Camp Nou.
New coach Luis Enrique has already strengthened at right-back with the £4.5m signing of Douglas from Sao Paulo and does not seem keen to offer Alves a new deal.
That could lead to United and Liverpool, who will be free to talk to the former Sevilla man from January onwards, attempting to sign him on a free transfer, claims the Daily Express.
Alves would be a natural for the right wing-back slot in Louis van Gaal’s 3-4-1-2 formation at United and arguably an upgrade on the current options of Rafael or Antonio Valencia.
Glen Johnson’s Liverpool future is in doubt, so Alves would provide an experienced alternative to youngsters Javier Manquillo and Jon Flanagan at Anfield.
Paris Saint Germain, Inter Milan, Juventus and Manchester City have also been linked with Alves in media reports.
