And there were we thinking that the Brazilian defender was thinking of coming to Old Trafford, even if he looked more than pleased when a move to Milan was touted.

Well it seems that Dani Alves was doing quite a good job in playing us for mugs!

Today it has been announced that the defender, now in his thirties, has signed a new deal with Barcelona, to extend his stay there.

To me it looks as if it is a classic case of his agent throwing to the media the names of a few teams interested in his client to force his current club to offer him a new and improved contract.

And some of us fell for it – doh!
