Manchester United dealt major blow in race to sign Barcelona ace

Daniel AlvesSky Sports have Manchester United fans looking up in the Football Transfer Tavern holding their breath as it seems that the Red Devils could well be about to miss out on Dani Alves.

The right-back had been on his way out of the door at the Camp Nou, however as one of our punters notes over a beer and burger over by the bar, Alves has made no secret of how much he loves Barcelona and the fact that he could well extend his stay with the club.

Manchester United are keen on bringing the Brazilian to the club but we think they should be looking for younger and fresher players – especially when you consider they would be earning around £150,000 per week.

The right back claimed: ‘I am very happy in this club and I have not signed for another club. If there are clubs that offer me a new alternative or I am not at the level that Barcelona desire I will be willing to contemplate other options.’

Manchester United fans. Could this be a massive blessing in disguise? Would you even want someone on the wrong side of 30 signing a mega deal with the club? Let us know your thoughts below.
