Bayern boss Guardiola lines up raid on former club.
Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola is lining up a raid on his old club Barcelona to sign Brazilian full-back Dani Alves, according to Infoticker.ch.
The experienced defender is looking likely to leave the Nou Camp on a free transfer at the end of the season, and is wanted by Premier League giants Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea.
Still, Alves may be tempted by a reunion with Guardiola, who signed him for Barcelona from Sevilla back in 2008, before an extremely successful period on the pitch during the Spaniard’s time in charge at the club.
Bayern are not in desperate need of new additions in that area, but Philipp Lahm’s move to midfield could mean Guardiola wants Alves as an upgrade on Rafinha.
