New Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has been working quickly in the transfer much to the delight of Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern.
The Gers boss has been keen to bring in some new faces as he looks to topple Celtic next season. Seven new players have been brought into the club so far and Gerrard hasn’t finished just yet. Leaving the club though, it’s been reported that Bruno Alves is set for a move to Italy.
Steven Gerrard has looked to freshen up the defensive ranks of the squad. The Liverpool legend has signed Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic, both of whom have a strong chance of starting in the first-team. With those two additions, the 36-year-old Bruno Alves has no real place in the squad, especially as he only has a year left on his current deal.
The veteran Portuguese international played 25 games for the Scottish outfit last summer following his free transfer last summer. Alves had spent a year with Italian outfit with Cagliari and now will return to Italy to play for Parma according to reports from Sky Sports.
Parma secured promotion back to Serie A just three seasons after their bankruptcy sent them to Serie D.
Alves, who was part of the Portugal squad that competed at the World Cup and has had a well-travelled career, playing for Zenit St Petersburg, Fernerbache and Porto in the past.
In truth, Alves won’t be a huge loss to the Rangers side, especially considering his age and the fact that Gerrard has already signed his replacements.
Will you be sad to see him leave Gers fans?
