Spanish tabloid Don Balon has reported sensational news that Barca Left back, Jordi Alba is the subject of a reported transfer by two English clubs.

Manchester United and Tottenham are in a two-way battle for the 29-year-old defender according to the reports. Mourinho is said to have placed the 29-year-old high on his list potential signings as he seeks to bolster the left back position.

United currently have veteran Ashley young in that position. However the English international turns 34 by the start of next season . Mourinho wants a world-class performer as he plots a title challenge for next season.

Luke Shaw has failed to impress the Portuguese manager, and he is reportedly expected to leave the club this summer.  Tottenham are also keen on the player and are looking for replacements for current left-back Danny Rose who is reportedly close to a move to United.

Jordi Alba

Alba coming to England seems unlikely as the defender has become an important player under coach Ernesto Valverde. Alba was lauded for his impressive displays last season with his combination play with Argentine captain Lionel Messi a key factor in the Catalan club double-winning campaign.

The Spanish defender was reportedly unhappy towards the end of Luis Enrique tenure at the Catalan club. However, the player has rediscovered his form and is happy at the Nou Camp. He made 47 appearances last season contributing two goals and 8 appearances in all competitions.
