Cape Town - FIFA agent Francois Gallardo claims Barcelona defender Daniel Alves has already agreed terms with Manchester United, where he will move on a free transfer at the end of the season.
The Brazil international has been strongly linked with a move away from the Nou Camp, where he has won virtually every title on offer in Spain and Europe during his six-year stay.
The likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Juventus have all been tipped as potential suitors of the right-back, but Gallardo says the Red Devils have already completed a deal.
"The player will leave Barcelona next season,” he told Spanish television programme Neox. “He has signed a preliminary agreement with Manchester United.”
United have undergone a mass overhaul since Louis van Gaal's appointment as manager in July, with the former Netherlands boss having spent over £150m on new signings, including club record arrival Angel di Maria, as well as Radamel Falcao, Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo.
