Manchester City are reportedly closing in on the signing of Juventus right-wing-back Dani Alves, and the Man City fans here in the Transfer Tavern are buzzing to say the least!
The Sun say the ex-Barcelona man is expected to sign on the dotted line by the end of the week, despite suggestions of Spurs hijacking the deal.
A two-year deal has been agreed and the free transfer should be announced once the legalities have been finalised.
Alves, 34 spent just a season at Juventus, winning the Serie A title in the process.
The Brazilian featured 19 times in the league, scoring twice.
However, it’s his spell at Barcelona which saw the defender emerge as one of the leading fullbacks in Europe. Alves won La Liga six times with the Catalan giants and the Champions League three times.
Alves now has set his heart on a reunion with his former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola.
Manchester City fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the imminent arrival…
Rotating Dani Alves and Kyle walker on the right and being able to play different system of formations with them in. Oh my.
