Official: Juve release Dani Alves

Dani Alves has officially terminated his contract with Juventus by mutual consent, freeing him up for a move to Manchester City.

It had been confirmed by director general Beppe Marotta last week, while yesterday the Brazilian wrote a goodbye message to the supporters.

The news was made official this afternoon with a brief statement on the Bianconeri website.

“Juventus Football Club is to part company with Dani Alves after agreeing to a termination of the player's contract,” read the statement.

“Alves lifted two trophies in his single season in Turin, contributing to a third consecutive domestic league and cup double for the club before helping the team reach the UEFA Champions League final.

“The Brazilian made a total of 33 appearances for the Bianconeri, having a hand in 12 goals (six goals, six assists), seven of which came in European matches.”

Usually in these statements, there is a comment thanking the player for his work and wishing him the best of luck, but that is notably absent in the Juventus release.

There is some bad blood between club and player following his public urging for Paulo Dybala to leave Juve if he wanted to reach his full potential.

Although Chelsea are also interested, it’s widely believed Dani Alves will reunite with former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
