Manchester clubs lead quintet eyeing up Barcelona ace Jordi Alba

| 24.06.2018

Manchester United and Manchester City appear to be at the front of the queue in the race to sign Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba.

Recent reports suggest the 29-year-old star could be the subject of a shock Nou Camp exit, with the two Manchester clubs reportedly leading the race to snap him up.

Both clubs have been priced up by our traders as 2/1 joint-favourites to land the defender who is currently on World Cup duty with Spain.

The Premier League interest doesn’t end there, though. Chelsea are also rumoured to be in for the diminutive ace. Antonio Conte’s men sit alongside Paris Saint-Germain at 9/2 in the betting.

Their London rivals Tottenham Hotspur complete our list at 10/1, should Alba wish to swap Catalonia for North London.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Jordi Alba looks set to be the subject of a Manchester tug-of-war this summer.”
