Juventus Confirm Forthcoming Dani Alves Exit As Man City Move Nears

Published on:

Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta has announced that Dani Alves is set to part ways with the Serie A club as Manchester City are all geared up to rope him in.

Antonio Conte’s Chelsea had also shown huge interest in the Brazilian full-back but it is understood that the former Barcelona man has now agreed a two-year deal with Man City.

Earlier, it had been reported that Alves’ current contract with Juventus was delaying a move to the Premier League.

But now Juventus have made it clear that they do not want to stop Alves as he eyes to leave Turin despite having a year left on his current contract.

He faced the ire of the Old Lady fans last week by stating that Paulo Dybala needs to test new waters in order to play to his full potential.

However, Marotta accentuated that there are no harsh feelings between Juventus and Alves, stating that the club would allow him to leave this summer.

Marotta said: “It is not a falling out, motivation is crucial to all players.”

“Dani Alves has realised that he wants to try a different experience, we will consensually rescind the contract and we wish him all the best. “

“Sure there is bitterness for what he has said, but I confirm that there has been no fall out.”

Alves will now become the third signing for Man City under Guardiola this summer, after already landing Bernardo Silva and Ederson at the Etihad.

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.

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.
