Published Add your comment

Porto full-back Danilo has verbally agreed to join Real Madrid, according to Marca.

Manchester United were supposedly set to match the Brazillian’s release clause of €50 million, however Danilo is reportedly ready to snub both the Red Devils and Barcelona in favour of joining the Galacticos in Madrid.

In line with Marca’s report, Madrid representatives have met with Danilo’s agent where it has been made clear that the Santiago Bernabeu is the player’s preferred destination.

Madrid bound

Real are now confident of securing his signature on a discounted deal of around €20 million. His contract at Porto expires next summer.

Madrid's rivals, Barcelona, were also rumoured to be interested in the 23-year old who joined Porto for in 2011. He has since become an established member of the Brazil team.

With Manchester United seemingly out of the race to sign Danilo, their attentions may turn to Dani Alves, who today has been the target of increasing speculation of a move away from Barcelona.

Alves agent, who is also is ex-wife, said: “We are close to signing for a new club.

“Dani is still available for Barcelona to keep hold of this summer, but he will not wait for them much longer.”

But United would be better off looking elsewhere as they continue to attempt to pay their way out of the David Moyes disaster.

With Alves’ agent clearly looking for the best financial deal, United shouldn’t be drawn into a bidding war for a 31-year old full back coming to the end of his top-tier career.

Danilo or Dani Alves - who is the better player?
