The lunchtime drinkers in the Transfer Tavern have been greeted with some fantastic news this afternoon in the shape of a Barcelona superstar on the move.
According to Sky Sports, Dani Alves has decided to leave the Blaugrana after a stunning spell with the Spanish giants that started back in 2008.
Since joining from Sevilla, the 33-year old has gone on to haul in trophies by the dozen, including three Champions League wins and 6 La Liga titles.
The Brazilian international has been widely regarded as one of the elite right-backs in world football for almost a decade now, and while he is undoubtedly entering the autumn of his career, will no doubt be of interest to Premier League clubs.
The Red Devils have struggled for a right-back of any stature to replace club legend Gary Neville, with both Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian struggling to wholly convince.
Would Alves be an shrewd addition on a short-term basis?
