Conte interested in Dani Alves
Daniel Alves Silva, in short Dani Alves is in the spotlight of the football-world after his inspiring displays with Bianconeri recently.
The Brazillian fullback who has turned 34 just six days ago is showing no signs of age-ing and has gradullay become an indispensable part of Max Allegri’s setup at Turin over the last few months.
His stellar performances recently in Europe has won plaudits from all related to the game and former Juve boss Antonio Conte is no exception. The current Chelsea manager is a big admirer of the former Barca fullback and is keeping a track of him according to reports in Daily Mirror and Sport.
Conte who plays predominantly in 3-5-2 formation, Wing-backs have major role to play in his setup. Dani Alves can prove to be the cherry on the cake for Conte’s lineup next season. Antonio Conte brought in Marcos Alonso from Florence at the beginning of this season as a potential Left wing-back and he has lived upto his expectations. Now, the Italian is thinking about Alves on the right side and just completing the jigsaw.
But roping the Brazillian in from La Bianconeri would not be easy as Allegri will also not like to let his priced asset go especially with Lichsteiner set to leave. Alves is having his contract with the champions of Italy untill 2018 and the Londoners might have to spend some bucks to land the fullback at Stamford Bridge in the summer.
The talks are on the verge of initiation between the two sides and the Chelsea faithful and Antonio Conte would only be hoping for a positive outcome.
