Man United still want to sign £54m-rated Spain international

Man United keen on signing Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba and preparing to make an offer during the transfer window. Red Devils have serious problems in defence and new high-class footballer is necessary. Luke Shaw refused to sign a new contract with the club and Ashley Young already 33-year-old.

So their replacement is necessary and Spain international is the best option in this situation. He had one more great season in La Liga and Mourinho decided to add him. Jordi joined the Blaugrana from Valencia in 2012 with a £13m deal. He is one of the best defenders in Europe and unchanged figure for the club. Last season Alba played 53 games, scored 3 goals and made 8 assists in all competition. This is an amazing result and he can improve his consequences in this campaign. Spanish left-back is contracted with the Catalan club until 2020 and his release clause is around £54m. His price could increase and become much more during this season.

Red Devils will do everything to add him as they really need a new high-class defender to improve the back-line. The 29-year-old also named in Furia Roja squad for the Mundial and helped them to reach the playoffs but after losing in a penalty shoot-out against Russia they kicked out from the competition.
