Five better options than the Barca full-back.

It is also arguable that Alves has never been the hardest worker defensively, which would perhaps be punished more often at the top level of English football than in La Liga, where Barca have strolled to success at times with little in the way of competition in Spain.

United should definitely consider other possibilities for the right-back spot, instead of being tempted by the big name, and here’s our pick of five who they should sign instead:

5) Seamus Coleman (Everton)

A superb attack-minded right-back, Everton’s Seamus Coleman has recently been linked with both United and Chelsea after his fine displays at Goodison Park. The Republic of Ireland international has his best years ahead of him and would surely make a better signing than Alves at this stage.
