With Claudio Bravo set to join Manchester City, Barcelona are looking for a replacement and it seems it will be Valencia's Diego Alves. According to Catalunya Radio the 31 year old will become part of the deal for Paco Alcacer that Barcelona are trying to seal. Meanwhile in return Sergi Samper and Munir El Haddadi would go the other way - with Barcelona retaining a re-buy clause on both those players. The deal should be closed before Barcelona vs Real Betis on Saturday.
Diego Alves, who is valued at 10 million euros, would be a reserve with Marc-Andre ter Stegen taking the No 1 role. This is an exciting week for the club transfer wise, with ins and outs set to follow. However, one player who might not leave is Douglas - who rejected an offer from Cruzeiro.
