Alves is on the radar of the Red Devils and Liverpool.
Having entered the final year of his contract it looks as if Dani Alves will leave Barcelona next summer and both Liverpool and Manchester United are keen on securing his signature, according to the Daily Express.
With Martin Montoya and new £4.5m signing Douglas at the Nou Camp currently, head coach Luis Enrique no longer has a place for the Brazil international in his squad.
In fact Enrique would have allowed Alves to leave the club this summer had he managed to tie up a deal for key transfer target Juan Cuadrado of Fiorentina.
As it was a move for the Colombian could not be agreed and it was decided that the right-back would be kept in Catalonia to act as cover – especially with Barca now being banned from signing new players until January 2016.
With Alves leaving the Spanish giants in less than 12 months time both the Reds and United have shown interest and are preparing to offer the right-back a one-year contract.
They will face stiff competition from both Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain as well, but it’s understood the 31-year-old would like to experience life in the Premier League.
Alves joined the Catalans from Sevilla in 2008 for £23.5m and has since played 299 games in all competitions and won four La Liga titles, two Copa del Reys and two Champions Leagues, among other things.
