Former Barcelona defender Dani Alves has informed Serie A champions Juventus that he would part ways with the club if they do not offer him a new deal.
His current contract with the Serie A club will expire in the summer of 2018 and he now wants the club to offer him a one-year extension.
FootTheBall sources reveal that Alves is happy with life at Juventus but is ready to hear offers from Premier League clubs if his contract is not extended.
He is under the radar of Manchester United and Chelsea after an incredible season in Italy.
Alves won Serie A, the Coppa Italia and reached the Champions League final in his first season at Juventus after his switch to the Serie A club from Barcelona on a free transfer.
After losing in the Champions League final at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium, Alves admitted that Real Madrid were undoubtedly the better side.
He said: “We managed to score the equaliser, but in the second half Real Madrid simply played better.”
“I think it was the approach we expected from them. The difference was we didn’t defend as well as we usually do.”
“If we don’t keep the concentration and intensity levels at the top all the way through, Real Madrid can hurt you straight away with the talent at their disposal.”
And the Brazilian superstar has now moved on.
He took to Instagram and posted a picture of himself with a caption that read: “Life will continue. Thank you God for taking care of us, for protecting us in this fierce world.”
“In victories we must be cautious, it is defeats that teach me.”
He began his footballing career with Brazilian club Bahia before making a switch to Sevilla in 2002.
Six years later he joined Barcelona and won 23 trophies in eight seasons, before moving to Juventus last summer as a free agent.
