Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is ready to offer Barcelona ace Dani Alves a mega-money deal at Old Trafford, according to the Daily Star.

Alves - who is out of contract at the La Liga giants at the end of the season - will be available on a free transfer next summer, and it now appears that Van Gaal is ready to bring him to the Premier League.

It won't be easy for Van Gaal to land him, however, with a number of other English clubs interested in the player's signature. As well as United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea have been credited with interest in the 31-year-old in recent time. 

It remains to be seen as to whether the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Co. are prepared to offer the Brazilian as much money as the Red Devils, but there may well be an interesting battle for Alves in 2015. 

It's Manchester United, though, that appear to be in the driving seat in the race to bring Alves to England's elite division, with the Red Devils looking to improve their back-line. 

Rafael da Silva 

The potential signing of Alves may well have consequences for the Brazilian full-back already at Old Trafford. The same report has in fact suggested that Van Gaal isn't convinced by the flamboyant star after an inconsistent start to this campaign. 

Rafael has, however, been in good form in the Red Devils' last two victories over West Ham United and Everton, but he endured a torrid tim at the King Power Stadium a couple of weeks ago as United were on the wrong end of a 5-3 scoreline against Leicester City.

Alves, then, despite being a number of years older than Rafael, may well replace him in Van Gaal's starting XI for the 2015/16 season. It remains to be seen as to whether United boss Van Gaal will ultimately look to sell Rafael or whether he will hand him the opportunity to battle with the current Barcelona man if he signs for the club. It certainly looks likely that Alves will arrive in England next summer, but will he move to Old Trafford?
