Dani Alves: ‘I want to win in Europe with Juventus’

June 3, 2016 - 10:00 pm

Dani Alves has confirmed that he’ll be joining Juventus, declaring ‘I want to win in Europe with Juve’.

Barcelona issued a statement earlier this week, thanking Alves for his years at the Camp Nou and confirming his departure.

The Brazilian full-back was linked to Juventus over the past fortnight and reports intensified that a deal had already been completed,  with Alves agreeing a two-year contract including an option for an additional year.

Speaking to Sportitalia, Alves spoke his first words as a Juve player:

“I won so much at Barcelona but now I want to win with Juventus.

“I’m always happy but I had to make a change in my career.

“I want to win in Europe with Juventus. I will go to Italy to win.

“I will be in Turin within days to sign. I already saluted the Barcelona fans and it’s a see you soon, not a goodbye forever. I am coming to Italy to win and then maybe return, because I remain a Blaugrana fan.”

The 33-year old apparently changed his ‘Whatsapp’ profile picture to reflect his move to Juve.

    Ok, not a bad start. Who knows anything about this Ikone kid? I find it interesting that he was/is considering Juve on advice from Kingsley Coman.

      If I’m not mistaken Juventus offered Bilbao 3m euro in the January window for Llorente but they said no and when El Rey Leon later signed in the summer he got a sign on bonus for around 3m euros.

    Now I have seen rumours linking Lichtsteiner to PSG, this looks like it will be a rough summer for us!
