Manchester United in talks with Barcelona ace

Manchester United have initiated talks to sign Barcelona defender Jordi Alba.

That’s according to Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, who claim Manchester United have ‘made contact’ with Alba’s representatives.

Alba, 29, has 18 months remaining on his contract but Barcelona are yet to offer the Spanish international an extension.

It’s believed Ernesto Valverde’s side will address the situation at some stage but their delays have reportedly opened the door to interested parties.

Mundo Deportivo claim United chiefs have told Vicente Fores, Alaba’s agent, that they would like to secure his signature because Jose Mourinho is dissatisfied with his options at left-back.

However, SportsMole claim Manchester United will have competition from tonight’s Champions League opponents Juventus – who are also considering the full-back.
