Chelsea and Arsenal are ready to fight for Barcelona right-back Dani Alves as the Brazilian has planned to leave Camp Nou.
Express reported that the London sides Chelsea and Arsenal will go head to head to acquire Daniel Alves services.
Barcelona full-back will be out of contract at the end of the season and has no plans to sign a new deal.
Alves has already told last year that he will leave this month for Premier League after spending several successful years in Spain.
While Manchester United are also interested in Alves, according to former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp.
Redknapp believes that Alves is still a quality player despite of his age factor.
Barcelona will be eyeing to sell him this month else he will leave on a free transfer in the summer window.
Manchester United boss is already keen on Everton full-back Seamus Coleman. But getting an experienced defender will add more depth to United squad, however it will not be easy as Chelsea and Arsenal also in the race.
Redknapp told DailyMail: “Barcelona’s Alves isn’t the force he used to be, but at 31, he isn’t washed up yet. I expect English clubs to push hard.”
Redknapp also added that Alves is in similar position like Steven Gerrard.
“Stevie is more interesting; he can still do a job for Liverpool and I hope he stays, but he may feel the criticism has become unbearable.”
The former Liverpool player wants Gerrard to stay and sign a new deal at Anfield.
