Porto's Bruno Alves On Barcelona's Radar

The much-wanted defender has a new suitor...
Porto defender Bruno Alves could be playing at the Camp Nou next season, as Barcelona enter the race for his signature.

According to the newspaper Diario de Noticias, Barca are keen to land the strong centre-half, who is also wanted by Real Madrid and various English clubs. Indeed, Pep Guardiola even tried to sign him before the start of the current campaign.

Porto are unlikely to sell Alves for anything less than €20 million, especially given the high demand he is in. Barca are ready to offer him a five-year contract, should their bid be accepted.

The 27-year-old has played more minutes than anyone for Porto during their league campaign. He also offers an attacking threat, thanks to his heading and free-kick-taking ability.
