Manchester United are tracking Barcelona’s emerging midfield talent Rafa Alcantara.

The 21-year-old, commonly known as Rafinha, has impressed this season while
on loan at Celta Vigo and has been tipped to be part of the Barca first-team squad next season.

But United – who tried to sign the player’s elder brother, Thiago, last summer but lost out to Bayern Munich – are watching developments closely.

The Old Trafford giants are plotting a major summer of spending after surrendering their Premier League title with eight defeats already under first-season manager David Moyes.

Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward said last week: “It’s fair to say we are focused on strengthening the squad. We aren’t afraid of moving in the market in a way we perhaps haven’t seen in recent years.

“We’ve had roughly three sales and three purchases each year, and it’s possible we would do more than that.”
