Man Utd encouraged in Barcelona battle for Jordi Alba

Manchester United are being encouraged in their pursuit of Valencia fullback Jordi Alba. United are battling Barcelona for the Spain international defender.

Valencia want £12 million Alba, a price deemed too rich by Barca, but is the amount United are prepared to pay for Leighton Baines, while Everton hold out for £20 million.

At six years Baines' junior and available for almost half the price, Alba is emerging as a top alternative for United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
