The city-rivals are expected to battle it out for the Brazilian defender after Spanish sources reported that the 30-year-old will leave the Nou Camp at the end of the season.

Dani Alves joined Barcelona from Sevilla in 2008 for £23 million and has since become a pivotal player for the Catalans, helping them to win two Champions League and four La Liga titles.

The Spanish giants are planning a huge overhaul in the summer and Alves has been earmarked as one of the stars that may leave the club.

Alves’ performances for the Spanish giants have come under serious scrutiny this season, with many in the Spanish media questioning his commitment during games.

According to the Daily Mail, both Manchester clubs are ready to take advantage of his delicate situation at Barcelona to secure his services in the summer.

Alves' contract at the Nou Camp is due to expire in 2015 and Barcelona are already thought to be lining up Porto’s Danilo as a replacement.
