Our resident Manchester United fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are no stranger to hearing Dani Alves being linked with the club, however the news filtering in from Goal via the Daily Star, has made them stand up and take notice!
The media outlet suggests that the Red Devils have made contact with the representatives of Barcelona defender Dani Alves regarding a potential move to Old Trafford, and this news has certainly divided opinion here in the pub!
Our landlord feels this would be a coup of Manchester United, and feels that Brazilian’s experience at the highest level can be nothing other than supremely beneficial for the Premier League giants going forward.
Meanwhile, a small contingent of United fans over by the smoking area of the Tavern admit they disagree with the landlord, and argue that at the age of 32, Alves is way past his prime and his best playing days are behind him!
Alves’ contract runs until 2017 at Barcelona, so the Red Devils will have to stump up a sizeable sum to lure the talented defender to Old Trafford in the summer.
Man United fans….. What do you make of this news? Would you like Alves at United? Let us know below!
