Despite not playing in the Champions League this season or Europe for that matter, United still lured top class players.
The brand is just too big to ignore it seems as Red Devils are set to sign another world class player in the form of Barcelona’s Dani Alves.
Brazilian international will play his last season with the Catalan giants this term as his contract will expire at the end of the campaign and he will be available on a free transfer.
With Alves’ preferred destination being premier league, many top clubs are interested in securing his services e.g. CL sides like Liverpool and Chelsea.
However, it looks like Manchester United have again stolen the march and Dani Alves will join Red Devils next summer.
According to Daily Express, Dani Alves has already agreed to join Manchester United on a bosman next season.
As per the provided link, FIFA agent Francois Gallardo claimed:
“The player will leave Barcelona next season. He has signed a preliminary agreement with Manchester United.”
Understandable that United can afford his wage demands and perhaps the only wait left for the deal to be complete is where will the Devils finish this season.
A player of Alves’ caliber has won every major trophy in club football including the Champions League and UEFA Cup (Now known as Europa League) twice.
Will he reject United if they do not qualify for CL next season, we shall see but it might be safe to say that he will definitely be a United player if they do qualify.
