United to swoop for Marcelo if Madrid buy Alaba

Real Madrid left back Marcelo could be heading to Manchester United after it emerged Real may sell the Brazilian in order to sign Bayern’s David Alaba.

Los Blancos are keen to sign the versatile Alaba which could mean that Marcelo would be in the market.

Summer recruit Luke Shaw has struggled to hit the ground running at Old Trafford, and an experienced full back is high on Louis van Gaal’s wishlist.

This news may baffle United fans as the club have spent £30 million on Shaw and £16 million on Marcos Rojo, who played at left back so effectively in the summer’s World Cup.

United are also said to be interested in Barcelona left back Jordi Alba, but that deal is unlikely to occur.
