The 31 year old is already into the final year of his Nou Camp contract and appears set to run down the deal in order to secure a lucrative deal to move to Old Trafford.

Man United boss Louis van Gaal will no doubt feel that the hugely experienced wing-back would be a better option on the right hand side of his defence than that likes of Rafael and Chris Smalling and the chance to bring in such a proven talent on a free transfer is clearly a very tempting one.

Alves is into his seventh season at the Catalan club and has played a pivotal role in the winning of numerous major titles including four La Liga triumphs and two Champions League successes and has over 300 appearances to his name.
