Don't spread s*** - Alves responds to transfer rumours


Manchester City have approached Juventus over a move for Dani Alves, with manager Pep Guardiola prepared to offer the Brazil global a two-year contract as he steps up his recruitment drive for next season. What do you think of the potential third City signing of the summer?

Though he has one year left on contract, Alves has not enjoyed his time in Turin, with fans turning on him after he suggested starting striker Paulo Dybala needed to leave the club to improve.

"Last year I turned down many offers from the Premier League because I felt I had to go to Serie A", The Mirror quotes Alves as saying.

Premier League giants Manchester City are reportedly ready to bring Juventus and Brazilian defender Dani Alves to England this summer.

It is time to reflect on what a generally disappointing season for the Eastlands club, with the club failing to lift any silverware with this season been the first time in Guardiola's career where he hasn't lifted a trophy come the end of the season.

Barnier dismissed the suggestion of postponing the negotiations and said such a delay would only prompt further instability. Talks restarted on Monday in Belfast, under Britain's Northern Ireland Secretary James Brokenshire.

Fabrizio Romano and Ed Aarons add: "That has led Guardiola to inquire after Alves, with whom he worked at Barcelona".

Alves could soon be wearing the blue of City, even though he was unaware of their existence a few years ago.

Those are traits identified in Walker, Mendy and Bertrand, and City will continue working on those deals in the coming days and weeks.

According to The Sun, City manager Pep Guardiola wants to reunite with his former player at the Etihad.

It was reported that Tottenham had initiated discussions with the former Barcelona right-back, who is one of the best players in his position in the world.
