Man United ready to spend big for Barca key player

Past reports have linked Barca left back defender, Jodi Alba with a move to Man Utd.

Man Utd have once again shown interest in the 29-year-old defender and this time around have reached a personal agreement with him.

The deciding factor, however, remains with the Catalans who wouldn’t willing to let him especially when they don’t have a worthy replacement yet.

Should Barca finally agree to let him go the Red Devils will have to pay an huge sum of £135 million for the left-back.

The Red Devils are financially buoyant to make the payment but this has raised the question on ‘if it is not too much a fee to pay for a left-back.’

Man Utd have Luke Shaw, who have put up some great performance this season but should they finally sign Jodi Alba, Shaw will have to step aside for him as he is more experience.

Rather than spending the huge sum on a single player, Man Utd also have the options of sign Juve left-back, Alex Sandro to the club for the sum of £70 million, which is far better.

However, the Red Devils board will determine if they will allow the move.
