Man Utd fighting Barcelona for Valencia fullback Jordi Alba

Manchester United are pushing to land Valencia fullback Jordi Alba. The Sunday Express says United and Barcelona are battling to sign Alba, who is expected to play against England on Saturday.

Left-back Alba, 22, is the latest talent to roll off the Valencia conveyer belt following David Villa, David Silva and Juan Mata.

Spaniard Alba has been watched by United a number of times as they look for a ­long-term successor to 30-year-old France international Patrice Evra.
