The agent of Manchester United target Dani Alves has confirmed AC Milan have made an offer for the Barcelona defender, although no decision has been made by the player yet.
Alves and his representatives have held several rounds of negotiations with the Catalan giants but the full-back now appears close to leaving the club he has served for seven years, after winning a historic second treble in Saturday's Champions League success over Juventus.
After the match, the Brazil international welcomed interest from Milan and while his agent has since revealed talks with the Rossoneri, the player has received other offers too.
"Yes, I can confirm that there has been contact with Milan," Alves' agent Dinorah Santana told Tutto Mercato Web. "But now we have to wait. I have to talk directly with Dani and evaluate together.
"Milan are not the only club after him, there are other requests that we cannot reveal at this moment. I can only add that I just have to wait and see how things evolve."
Barcelona have left an offer with Alves but vice-president Jordi Mestre acknowledges that the ball is now in his court as to whether he signs it.
"I completely respect what Dani has said recently, but if we didn't want him to stay at the club, then we wouldn't have made him an offer," Mestre was quoted as saying by AS.
"We count on his services for the future and we feel that the offer is competitive. The ball is in his court and we just hope that he makes his mind up sooner rather than later".
The club themselves would appear to be preparing for life without the defender having today confirmed a deal to sign Aleix Vidal from Sevilla.
Despite not being able to register players until January 2016 due to a transfer ban, the Catalans today announced the arrival of the 25-year-old on a five-year deal.
Barcelona's loss could be United's gain with Louis van Gaal reportedly eager to add Alves to his squad. The Dutchman will hope the incentive of Champions League football can help sway the Brazilian, with Milan's 10th place finish in Serie A ensuring no European football for them next season.
