Manchester City target Dani Alves is all set to leave Juventus and join the Premier League outfit on a two year deal upon leaving Juventus.

Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed Dani Alves is set to leave the club this summer and talks are under way to secure an early release from his contract. Juve have revealed they will not stand in the 34-year-old’s way as he aims to leave Turin with a year still left on his contract.

Juventus chief executive Giuseppe Marotta said on Wednesday, according to Tuttosport:

“We’re not talking about a breakdown in the relationship, it’s motivation that is fundamental for players.

“Dani Alves has realised that he wants to try a different experience, we will consensually rescind the contract and we wish him all the best.

“There’s certainly sadness because of what’s been said, but I can confirm there’s been no breakdown in our relationship.”

Following the exits of Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta, Manchester City are poised to sign Dani Alves.

Alves is one of the most successful footballers in history and was one of the current City boss’ first-ever signings in the game. Guardiola brought him to FC Barcelona in 2008.
