Man Utd make contact with Barcelona fullback Jordi Alba
Manchester United are reportedly serious about their pursuit of Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba.
The Spaniard has 18 months remaining on his current contract but has yet to have been offered an extension by the Catalan giants.
According to Mundo Deportivo, United have made contact with Alba's representatives.
The report claims manager Jose Mourinho wants to bolster his left-back stocks, despite the club signing Luke Shaw to a bumper contract extension last month.
Barcelona are believed to be interested in negotiating an extension with Alba, but have not made it a priority at this time, leaving United to swoop in.
