Rumoured Manchester United target Dani Alves has signed a new two-year contract with Barcelona, with the option of a further year.
Alves, who helped Barcelona win the treble last season, would have been available as a free agent this summer but he has now committed himself to the Spanish club.
Reports had suggested Man United were considering making a move for the Brazilian defender but it appears these were just rumours created by Alves’ agent in order to get a better deal.
Unfortunately, it is a case of another player using United. Bayern Munich pair Dante and Thomas Muller have also been guilty of this in the past.
United have reportedly been looking at Southampton’s Nathaniel Clyne as well as Everton’s Seamus Coleman.
Meanwhile, Rafael seems to be the forgotten man at United despite his years of loyal service.
