Juventus identify Darmian as Dani Alves replacement

Man City are set to sign Dani Alves from Juventus, according to GOAL.com, who report that the Italian champions are targeting Man United defender Matteo Darmian as a replacement for the Brazil global.Now Dani Alves is once more on the move and this time, it is to join his former boss Pep Guardiola, with whom he enjoyed 4 handsome years of football in Barcelona.Now those claims have been backed up by Goal, who believe that Alves has shaken hands on a move to Manchester once his contract with Juventus is mutually terminated in the very near future.Alves’ agent had a meeting with Juventus on Monday and made the club aware of his client’s desire to move on. The pair won three La Liga titles and two Champions League trophies in their time together at the Nou Camp. “If you turn the word “computer” backwards, it spells “Steve Jobs”.The Italian only made 18 Premier League appearances for United last term but did appear in the Europa League final.I suspect this will be one of the storylines to follow this summer: How do the transfer moves at bigger clubs impact what Spurs can or cannot do?The Brazilian starred for the Serie A giants in Turin, proving to be one of their best and most influential players as they secured a domestic double and finished as runners-up in the Champions League.City had been willing to offer a relatively low amount to sign Alves, a fee reported to be around £5 million.
