City closing in on Dani Alves – but where does that leave Kyle Walker?


Manchester City are close to agreeing a deal for Juventus full-back Dani Alves, reports the Mirror.

The Brazilian only moved to Turin last summer on a two-year deal, but with just 12 months left on that contract, he looks set to depart the Old Lady.

The former Barcelona star is 34 and his experience could be a huge asset as Pep Guardiola looks to overhaul his defence.

It’s no surprise that City are in the market for right-backs following the departure of veterans Pablo Zabaleta and Gael Clichy.


Alves also seems a natural fit given that he worked with Guardiola at the Nou Camp.

This may yet have ramifications for the club’s pursuit of Tottenham’s Kyle Walker, though the same source suggests they retain an interest in the England international and any deal for Alves would not change that.

Alves would be the cheaper option, as ESPN claim he could be available for just £5million.
