Barcelona star Dani Alves could move to Man United this summer with his contract at the Spanish club set to expire.
The right back's agent revealed earlier this week that Alves is set for the Camp Nou exit with a new deal not forthcoming and said: "I interpret that silence to mean they don't want Dani Alves, so we will begin searching for a new club. We won't wait for Barcelona, they have to take the plunge."
Louis van Gaal is a long-term admirer of the 31-year-old, and progress in the deal has gathered considerable pace in the last few days according to the Express.
Indeed, they claim that Alves' agent, Dinorah Santana is keen to see what United can offer and whether the Premier League club can offer the 3-year-deal they are looking for.
