Alves set for Barca move
Brazil international defender Daniel Alves of Sevilla is set to move to fellow top Spanish club Barcelona for around 30 million euros, the country's media said on Friday.
The transfer is set to be completed shortly and will allow Barcelona to continue to rebuild their defence after recent buys, Spain's Gerard Pique and Martin Caceres of Uruguay, daily newspapers AS and El Mundo reported on their internet sites.
The 25-year-old Alves, an attacking right back who can also play in midfield, almost moved to Chelsea last year.
Last month he had said he wanted to leave Sevilla where he has played since 2002.
