Manchester United join race to sign ex-Chelsea star

Manchester United chiefs have made contact with Paris Saint-Germain defender Alex in a bid to stop him signing a two-year deal with Serie A giants AC Milan this summer, according to Sky Sport Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

Alex is out of contract at the end of the season and despite being an integral part of PSG's success has only been offered a one-year extension by Laurent Blanc's side, with AC Milan's longer term offer a proposition which provides stability for the Brazilian international.

The 31-year-old is focused on helping PSG maintain their fight for silverware on multiple fronts and is yet to make a decision over his future, which has given United enough time to enter the race for his signature.

Di Marzio has used his personal website to report that United joined a now three-horse race to sign Alex last night, although the ex-Chelsea stalwart is holding out for an improved offer from PSG.

With Alex forming a fantastic defensive partnership alongside Thiago Silva at the Parc des Princes the French champions may yet budge on their single-season contract offer, particularly given the interest shown by other leading clubs on the continent.

United are actively seeking an experienced central defender to replace outgoing club captain Nemanja Vidic, with Alex available on a free transfer if David Moyes can persuade the giant to give the Premier League another go next season.
