Barcelona star’s agent admits to talks with Serie A giants as end of eight-year stint looms

Posted by

The agent of Barcelona full-back Dani Alves has confirmed that she has had talks with Juventus over a summer transfer move, but no offer has been made.

According to reports in Cadena Ser on Wednesday, Alves had agreed a two-year deal with the Turin giants as his time at the Nou Camp is seemingly drawing to a close.

However, Dinorah Santana has denied that any agreement has been reached, although conceded that she has held talks with Juve over a possible deal.

“It’s true that Juventus have contacted me,” she said, as reported by Marca. “But there hasn’t been any official offer from the Bianconeri.

“There’s an interest in Dani and obviously Juve aren’t the only club that are following him attentively. The clause? I can’t reveal the details of the agreement with Barcelona, that’s confidential.

“Anything could happen, absolutely.”

The 33-year-old joined Barca from Sevilla in 2008, and has played an integral role in their success since, winning six La Liga titles, three Champions League trophies and three FIFA Club World Cup titles.

However, given his age and waning influence in what is a key position for Luis Enrique’s side, the Catalan giants could be forced into searching for a long-term successor for the Brazilian international sooner rather than later.

Whether he moves to Juve or not remains to be seen, but Alves still has plenty left to offer at the top level and a switch to Turin could give the Serie A champions the kind of experience and quality they need to make that step up in the Champions League next season, combined with their other summer transfer business.
