Dani Alves close to Man City agreement

June 17, 2017 - 8:12 pm

According to Goal Italia, Dani Alves has found an agreement with Manchester City over a potential summer transfer.

The report suggests that the Premier League side are close to reaching an agreement with Brazilian full-back and are only a step away from completing a deal.

Alves has become the primary targets for the Citizens after failing to secure Tottenham Hotspurs Kyle Walker or Monaco’s Benjamin Mendy.

The Brazilian could become Juve’s first big sale of the summer as a result of an alleged fallout between the Bianconeri management and the player which could lead to his exit from the club.

 

Update

Corsport, Sky and publications in the UK are also reporting that Juventus are in negotiations for Dani Alves – Man City are prepared to offer £5m for him and already have an agreement in principle with the player.

    Good. Though some may argue that he was of help, I still would’ve preferred lichtsteiner. Alves played for himself, and caused a couple goals in the final vs Real. He flops around, loses his head, and doesn’t represent us in the right way. Lets just say he wasn’t too far off from becoming another Felipe Melo.

      hohoho! I wouldn’t go that far. Melo was a mentalist, and I quite liked him. Too small a brain in too big a body! yet I am of a similar opinion, in that Alves was not great. He had several games where he excelled, other than which was average pre-injury and not outstanding in the league by any measure. Helped us in the CL a fair amount. Nothing more.

      Also his comments recently in regards to Dybala, suddenly make more sense. he is a spiteful chap. He likes to bad mouth clubs who he feels he has wronged…Perhaps he had asked for assurances of a first team berth?

      Nevermind, I assumed one of the wide players would leave, and now we can seek a RB. A younger one I hope, who can learn from Lichsteiner who still has so much to offer at the top level. This also adds need to get a RW. As we only have Cuadrado…

    Good riddance! Not everyone is worthy of the jersey. It’s about the club culture and Dani doesn’t fit it, in all honesty he seems like a complete moron. He was phenomenal in two or the champions league games but that’s it, defensively he is horrible. We’d always have to have someone double team his marker because he couldn’t do it himself. And if the club makes 10-15$ million profit, all the better on the sale. Honestly what a complete prick, as if somehow he is above the team. Complete poison in the locker room, the sooner he leaves the better.

    Well, I am not too surprised. He won the Scudetto and the Coppa already after all. Thank you for your service Dani and goodbye! Wont forget the Monaco games.

    Please leave our youngsters alone though, just leave.
