Manchester United are being linked with Barcelona fullback Daniel Alves. The Daily Mail says Alves will be the first high-profile casualty as Barcelona look to rebuild their squad this summer.

Alves has a contract at the Nou Camp until 2015, meaning Barcelona feel they can attract around 35million euros (£28m) for the right-back.

But while some of the Barcelona hierarchy feel Manchester United could be persuaded to part with that kind of money, Russian moneybags Anzhi Makhachkala seem a more likely destination.
