Manchester United may be close to agreeing a new contract with Luke Shaw, but they could be set to sign Jordi Alba from Barcelona.
The Spanish left back has been a crucial member of the Barça team since moving to Camp Nou in 2013, but his impact has dwindled more recently and could now leave the club in search of a new challenge.

Reports suggest that Alba has already agreed personal terms with United and a staggering £135million deal could now go through in January, but Old Trafford bosses will need to pay his release clause.
Though Shaw has been playing his best football in years this season, his current contract expires at the end of the campaign and Alba’s potential arrival certainly raises questions over his future.
