Manchester United miss out on sealing deal for La Liga sensation

AlvesManchester United fans are rolling their eyes here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they hear from BBC Sport that Dani Alves has penned a new deal with Barcelona.

Now as one of our punters notes, we thought that Alves would be joining United and the right back had made it very clear he wanted to leave the Camp Nou, until doing a massive U-turn and signing a new contract until 2017 with the club.

We think Alves had no intention of leaving Barca and after seeing the club win the treble, we can fully understand his desire to stay and would probably have done the same thing.

United meanwhile will now have to look elsewhere and they may struggle to find someone as good as Alves!

Manchester United fans. Who would you like to turn your attentions to now? Did Alves ever have any intention of leaving Barca? Let us know your thoughts below.
