The Daily Mirror certainly have our Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern interested after they claimed that Daniel Alves would prefer a move to the BLUE half Manchester.
The Barcelona right back is looking to leave the Camp Nou next summer and has made it very clear that he wants to make a move to the Premier League.
It had been thought that Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United were leading the chase to land the Brazilian but it seems that Alves has made his mind up about where he wants to go and it has not gone down well with our regulars.
As they note, United could well do with a new right back given we have never really been convinced by Rafael. It seems that van Gaal agrees given his not so secret hunt for more defenders as the January transfer window approaches.
As our landlord points out over a game of pool, United may well buy a defender this winter and thus have no need for Alves’ arrival.
Manchester United fans. Do you want someone who has expressed an interest in playing for City? Let us know your thoughts below.
