And now Spanish paper Mundo Deportivo has it that United have been told in no uncertain terms that Alba is not for sale at any price.

This follows suggestions that United had staked an interest in Alba as they seek a long-term successor to Patrice Evra.Alba managed only 21 appearances for Barca last season, but is highly regarded in Europe.
