Juventus CEO Giusseppe Marotta has confirmed that Dani Alves will leave the club after talks to rescind his contract over the last few days.
The next step will be for Alves to confirm his move to Manchester City on a two-year deal, where he will join up with Pep Guardiola once again.
“It’s not a breakdown of our rapport, as motivation is fundamental for a player,” Marotta told Tuttosport. And he added that the Brazilian "wants to try an alternative experience, so we will terminate the contract by mutual consent and wish him all the best."
Marotta did admit that he is sad to see the former Barcelona play leave the club: “Of course there is disappointment at what he said, but we confirm there was no split.”
Alves joined Juve for free from Barça last summer and will not embark on another new adventure under Guardiola in England.
City have released both their right-backs this summer (Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta) and are also thought to be looking to sign another right-back, with Tottenham's Kyle Walker a target.
