Juve confirm Alves departure

21 June 2017 14:09:50 EST

Juventus chief executive Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed that wing-back Dani Alves is leaving the club after just one season in Turin.

The 34-year-old Brazil international has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester City, where he would link up with his former Barcelona coach, Pep Guardiola.

And, while Marotta announced that a parting of the ways is a certainty, he dismissed talk of a major argument over quotes Alves gave to the press about the future of Juve star Paolo Dybala.

Marotta told reporters: "It is not a falling out, as motivation is crucial to all players.

"Dani Alves has realised that he wants to try a different experience, so we will mutually terminate the contract and we wish him all the best.

"Sure there is some bitterness for what he has said, but I confirm that there has been no falling out."

Alves helped Juve clinch a domestic double in his only season with the club, while they also reached the Champions League final, only to be beaten 4-1 by Real Madrid in Cardiff.

Previously the South American won six league titles in Spain with Barca, as well as three Champions League crowns, while on the international stage he was a member of the Brazilian squads who won both the Copa America and the Confederations Cup.

Alves has won 100 caps for the Selecao, while he made almost 400 appearances for Barcelona in all competitions.

Manchester City are available at 12/1 to win the Champions League next season, with Barcelona priced at 5/1 and Real Madrid 5/1.
