Juventus Confirm Alves Departure

Juventus have confirmed they will release right-back Dani Alves from the final year of his contract.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is known to be interested in the 34-year-old, whom he knows from their time together at Barcelona.

Speaking to Italian media on Wednesday, Juventus chief executive Beppe Marotta said that Alves had “expressed a desire to try a new experience”.

Alves has only been with Juve for a year, winning Serie A and reaching the Champions League final.

Prior to that, he had spent eight seasons at Barcelona. The first four of those were under Guardiola, a period when the pair shared in two Champions League triumphs and won La Liga on three occasions.
