Manchester United are confident of sealing a deal for Barcelona and Brazil defender Dani Alves, according to the Metro.

The 31-year-old's contract at the Nou Camp expires at the end of the season and negotiations with the Spanish giants have stalled somewhat.

Louis van Gaal is a desperate for a short-term solution to United's defensive situation, with Antonio Valencia having to fill in at right back for most of the season. Alves, therefore, stands as the perfect option to turn to.

Meanwhile, the agent of PSG's Marquinhos claims the Red Devils have registered an interest in the player.

The 20-year-old has struggled for first-team opportunities this season following the summer arrival of David Luiz.

Nonetheless, the French side value Marquinhos at an incredible 150 million euros according to Le Parisien.
