Man United make bid, tell star he has 15 days to sign for them, announcement soon

It'll be no surprise that the reports on Dani Alves' future have blown up in the Spanish media. Catalan newspaper Sport have a big piece on it in their Saturday edition and Manchester United are the the club in the forefront according to the claims.

Recent reports that Alves had agreed to sign for PSG are rubbished and it's stated that the French club haven't yet made a formal offer to the player, but rather held preliminary talks with his agent. On the other hand, Manchester United are said to have seriously upped their interest over the past few weeks.

The Premier League club have made an offer of a three year deal but are getting impatient say Sport, and want an answer soon so they can complete the deal and make an announcement. It would be the first part of Manchester United's summer transfer plan. 

Sport do seem a little elastic with their timeframe. At one part of the article they say Alves has 15 days to come to his decision, another claim puts it at two weeks, another says a few weeks, and another says Manchester United want to know before the end of April, which would take things to 19 days. Either the report isn't as concrete as Sport are making out or they're finding different ways to describe 'soon'.

Alves is of course vey tempted by Manchester United but also has offers from elsewhere. Several Premier League clubs are interested and PSG can't be ruled out, neither can a stay at Barcelona. The Brazilian right back is 31 years old and fortunate not to have been dogged by injuries throughout his career, so he's still at the top of his game and has been one of Barcelona's most used players so far this season. Alves may sometimes appear to play the clown with his choice of fashion and actions but he's an excellent professional who Luis Enrique has become very fond of over the season.
