Barcelona see Man Utd fullback Rafael as long-term Dani Alves successor

Barcelona are interested in Manchester United fullback Rafael da Silva. El Mundo Deportivo says Barca see Rafael as a long-term successor to Daniel Alves.

Alves penned a new deal with Barca earlier this year, but Barca are still planning for the long-term and have United right-back Rafael in their sights.

Rafael was kept out of United's first team for the Champions League final by twin brother Fabio.

The pair have just turned 20 years of age and Rafael is already a Brazil international.
