Manchester City have finally solved their fullback problem
Pep Guardiola is closing in on a £5million deal to be reunited with Dani Alves at Manchester City, per The Guardian.
Alves, 34, was signed by Guardiola at Barcelona, where the pair enjoyed a great four-year spell together, winning two Champions Leagues and three LaLiga titles.
When the coach left in 2012, taking over at Bayern Munich a year later, Alves stayed and had more success before joining Juventus in 2016.
City are keen on attracting fullbacks after letting go of Gael Clichy and Pablo Zabaleta. Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy have been linked, but Alves is seemingly taking precedence.
Good evening. City are closing in on a deal for Dani Alves ? https://t.co/n1bLG9rznx— Sam Lee (@Sammy_Goal) June 17, 2017
The Brazilian showed he has still got a lot of life in him yet, despite his age, by playing a huge role in helping Juve to a sixth-straight Serie A title and the Champions League final.
But having stated he believes teammate Paulo Dybala should leave the club, it would be a good betting tip to suggest he will now depart himself.
