The Spaniard has been linked with a move away from Camp Nou to replace Shaw at the Theater of Dreams.
The La Liga champions allowed Lucas Digne (Jordi’s backup) to leave their side this summer and are expected to hold on to Alba.
But the Daily Star made it known that Manchester United are not deterred by that, as manager Jose Mourinho believes the Spaniard is an ideal player that can add a lot of quality to his team at Old Trafford.
Indeed, Alba is a superb player and he will definitely be a big upgrade on Shaw.
