Red Devils said to have deal agreed with Brazilian superstar.
Manchester United apparently already have a deal in place to sign soon to be free transfer Dani Alves from Barcelona at the end of the season, the Daily Express reports.
The defender is out of contract this summer, and as it stands there is no new deal in place to keep him on board beyond the expiration of his current deal.
FIFA agent Francois Gallardo claims that a deal has already been agreed that will see Alves move to Old Trafford.
“The player will leave Barcelona next season. He has signed a preliminary agreement with Manchester United.”
Both Liverpool and Chelsea had been keen, but the player’s agent, Dinorah Santana, hinted that a deal was yet to be struck and that his client will assess his options in the new year.
“If the club [Barcelona] wanted to renew Alves they would have done it already. I would not do things they way they have.
“We will leave the suitors until December or January… then we’ll decide who to marry.”
