Manchester City are reportedly looking at buying Brazilian international defender Dani Alves in the summer transfer period, to accompany their purchase of Kaka worth an estimated combined £90 million.

Alves had been discussing a new contract with La Liga giants Barcelona, however talks have since broken down, with the 27 year old looking to England for a new deal.

“I don’t feel the club have been doing their utmost to renew my contract, but that’s just a feeling I have,” Alves told Spanish newspaper Sport.

“I want an agreement to be reached within a few days.

“I’m as committed to the club as anyone in the squad. I won’t be a hypocrite though. If the club want to replace me it could cost them dear.”

In the biggest indication that Alves is looking elsewhere for a deal, he said, “what I want is for the club to value me depending on my importance and influence within the squad. If they do that, I’ll be over the moon and if not, thanks for these years at the club.”

Kaka has also been looking at going to Manchester City in the summer, which will certainly make fellow Brazilian Alves feel much more at home at the club.

Manchester City face competition from Chelsea in particular to secure Kaka, who are hoping that manager Carlos Ancelloti’s relationship with the ex-AC Milan midfielder will be the draw card to secure the star.
