Dani Alves on the verge of Juventus move

May 30, 2016 - 8:31 am

According to multiple reports in Italy, Dani Alves could be on the verge of completing a move to Juventus this week.

RAI Sport and Gazzetta dello Sport both report the deal as all-but complete with the Brazilian full-back agreeing a move to Turin. All that’s missing is the official announcement.

Alves reportedly has a clause in his deal with Barcelona which allows him to terminate his contract early, provided it is exercised before 5th June, thus allowing him to leave as a free-agent.

The Brazilian will sign a two-year deal with Juventus, earning close to 3.5m a season, with an option for a third year included in his contract.

Gazzetta also report that Alves’ wife will agreed a deal with a modelling agency in Milan, while CalcioMercato Alves has started house-hunting in Turin.

    Sooner it’s official, the better – I’m not a huge fan of this time of year……yet i’m obliged to report on it, write about it, join in the speculation circle-jerk and all the rest of it.

    Anyway, if he joins, great, an alternate for Lichty, a player with CL experience…..plus i trust Marotta to get the right kind of players.

    A day closer to the return of real football. 82 days to go until Serie A is back….

      Once it’s made official, then we can truly discuss what this means for the rest of the transfer market and plans for next season.

      10 days till the euro. I can’t get myself to think about the next Serie A season yet.

    Are his antics anything like RM’s Pepe? His behaviour in the CL final was appalling. If so I 100% regret this transfer if it happens. We don’t need this nonsense on the pitch.

      hohoho! No mate, not as bad. More whining, some drama, not close to Pepe in terms of spastic, yet consistently behaving as if he was made of egg shells, when it suits his cause. Players get away with that in Spain, not so in Italy. He will learn or be moved on.

      I dont think he is as bad as Pepe, but still much of the same

    There’s other transfer ‘news’ today as well….i think i might start a daily recap at the end of the day, covering all the various players we’re linked to, easier than covering all of it individually.

      Great idea. Would also make the homepage easier to overlook.

    The news has had some time to soak and I am beginning to find the begrudging focus on the positives of the move.

    He could have signed elsewhere for much more money. Yes it seems that his luscious woman had her say, yet still, I prefer to conclude that he wants to compete at the highest level and is willing to give way to a few million in order to join our charge to champions league glory.

    He has played regularly throughout the season for one of the top two teams in the world. Which suggests he is not yet too long in the fang to prove valuable. His experience is top drawer and his technique on the ball is world class. He will instantly become the best crosser in our squad, has brilliant close control for a defender and his engine seems fine.

    He knows how to win the champions league.

    We have played all season with no recognised RB other than Lichsteiner. Cuadrado has far more pace and acceleration but he is technically weaker than Alves. For 3.5m per season we are upgrading our right flank options and bringing in proven class.

    Yes yes! He is old, but to play so regularly for Barca this just finished season suggests to me as an option to rotate with Lichsteiner, he will be fine.

    It is very tricky to improve our squad with proven talent. Alves will be a good signing. I will put aside my former hatred, assume he will soon learn how to comport himself in our colours and welcome him with my full support.

      I think it’s going to take a little longer for me to adopt the idea of having Alves in our squad. For some reason I have developed an indescribable dislike towards him, the likes only a few players have managed so far.

      True, he has a cabinet full of baubles, and he definitely has the experience to play on the highest level, still I find him personally more dislikeable than anyone in our current squad. The things he do outside the pitch makes him look like a total idiot – not something I want (or what I’m used to) by Juve players. Whenever I think of him, I think he could be the perfect man for Inter.

      He also has a contract until 2017, and players in the Spanish league usually have a ridiculous buy out price too. Will Barca let him go for free? Why are we not going after Gregory van der Wiel who’s contract is running out in June, and also not involved in the Euro2016?

      Whatever, if he’s coming he has to work hard like the rest of them, and they have to ban him from social media.

        I disliked the idea of signing Tevez (he even got the #10 !), but you know how the story went …

          Well, I didn’t dislike Tevez, probably because I liked his performances in the PL. I thought his misbehaving was curable.

          I don’t like how Alves plays, at least not as much as I liked the way Tevez played, so until there’s ink on the contract, I’m hoping it’s not true. After that, best of luck to him on his quest to amaze us doubters.

    It’s happening

    Marotta: “We are very optimistic regarding the negotiations for Dani Alves.”

      No need to start a whole new post so i’ll just put it here – Beppe’s interview from a few minutes back:

      Marotta: “We want to have two great players in every position. We met with Perez but we’ve not talked about Morata.”

      “We are interested in Mascherano & Gomes, but it’s a difficult negotiations”

      “Morata? We will talk next week with Real Madrid in a clarification meeting. We’ll try to keep him.”
