Pep Guardiola is reportedly working on a deal to reunite with former Barcelona colleague Dani Alves.
The Spanish manager signed Alves for Barcelona for a fee of £23 million from Sevilla in 2008, where they would enjoy a highly successful spell together.
Juventus are reportedly willing to allow Alves to leave for £5 million, which Manchester City have agreed, and the English club are prepared to offer the 34-year-old a two-year deal.
Manchester City are in need of reinforcements in the full-back positions following the exits of Gael Clichy, Bacary Sagna, Pablo Zabaleta and even Jesus Navas, as the Spanish midfielder was used as an auxiliary full-back towards the end of the campaign.
While Tottenham’s Kyle Walker remains a priority signing for the right-back slot, complications over his transfer fee have stalled negotiations, as Spurs are believed to be wanting in excess of £40 million for the England international.
Despite his advancing years, Dani Alves showed he has plenty left in the tank, making 33 appearances and scoring six times in Juventus’ Serie A and Coppa Italia winning season.He also played in the Champions League Final, but came up short as Real Madrid ran rampant in a 4-1 victory. It was his third Champions League Final appearance of his career, as he missed the 2009 Final against Manchester United due to suspension.
