LONDON, England- Manchester City FC manager, Pep Guardiola is keen on re-uniting with Juventus FC Brazilian right-back Dani Alves according to a report published by the UK Guardian on Monday.
“Guardiola is prepared to offer the Brazil international a two-year contract as he steps up his recruitment drive for next season.
“City are searching for defensive options after allowing Bacary Sagna and Gaël Clichy to leave when their contracts expire at the end of this month,” the Guardian who reported City had contacted Juventus to seal a move worth five million pounds said.
This is after City failed to reach agreement with Tottenham Hotspur to bring England’s Kyle Walker with the English Premier League rivals slapping a 40 million pound price on the player.
“Alves still has one year left on his contract and City have been told a bid of around £5m would be sufficient to persuade the Turin club to sell the 34-year-old.
“Despite reports in Spain that a deal has already been agreed, it is understood negotiations are continuing but Alves has agreed a contract in principle to link up with his former manager,” the publication added.
