Manchester United are set to seal the deal for Barcelona full-back Dani Alves according to Spanish reports.
The Catalan newspaper Sport revealed earlier today that the Premier League club who have been eyeing the Brazilian for the past several months are now set to complete the deal.
Alves who has made his mind to leave the club this summer on a free transfer is ready to team up with former team mate Victor Valdes. The right-back who has helped his side to reach the finals of Champions League yesterday is keen to play in the Premier League.
The 23-year-old will become free agent at the end of the season as his contract expires this summer. He has already denied to agree a new contract at Camp Nou.
While, the Telegraph reported that even if United sign Alves they will still try for Southampton full-back Nathaniel Clyne.
According to Sport Alves will sign next week. Man Utd will offer him a better contract than Barca as per further reports.
Meanwhile, Paris Saint Germain striker Edinson Cavani is also on Louis van Gaal’s radar. The center-forward is not happy in France with his playing position. He is also been eyed by Liverpool and Arsenal.Columnist: Simon Oates
