Manager Louis van Gaal is highly interested in the Brazilian right back Dani Alves. The 32 year old has proved reliable over the years, and is a valued member of the Barcelona squad. Dani Alves has 1 month remaining on his contract, which will allow the defender to join United for free during the summer.
Alves said this week: “I may have two feet in the team but I’ve also got one foot, my body and nearly my head out of the club,” telling the media that he wishes to leave after being embarrassed by the contract negotiations.
The player has been given a contract with a significant pay-cut. Money is not a motivation for the right back, however, he believes that he should be paid fairly for his services to the club. After winning the La Liga, and being in two finals, Manchester United would want to sweep up the itchy feet defender as soon as possible.
Victor Valdes maybe one of the biggest motivations that Dani Alves may receive.
