Jordi Alba is a popular figure in the Transfer Tavern, and it seems as though a move to the Premier League could potentially be on the cards for the Spaniard this summer…
According to AS, Barcelona defender Jordi Alba has been in touch with players of both Chelsea and Man Utd this summer, as the defender weighs up his options should he decide to depart the La Liga outfit this summer.
It will come as no real surprise that he is considering his future, given his lack of action in recent weeks. He certainly isn’t a favourite under Luis Enrique, and for a player of his quality, he simply needs to be playing every single week.
But what exactly what he offer either Premier League outfit? His electric pace is undoubtedly his greatest asset, making him far more effective both defensively and offensively. Certainly, he is stronger with his back to goal, whilst running at opposition defences, but he is also comfortable defensively when called upon.
With Luke Shaw rarely a feature at Man Utd, our landlord thinks that a move for Alba, who Transfer Markt value at £27.20 million, would be perfect for the Red Devils.
