Alves bridges Juve and Barça

Dani Alves is only the latest player to make his mark at both Barcelona and Juventus, notes Greg Murray.

Transferring from Sevilla in 2008, Brazilian international Dani Alves quickly became a favourite under Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola. Despite missing the Champions League Final victory in his first year, Alves played a significant role in the Catalan’s Treble-winning season. This marked the beginning of a golden era for both the club and the right-back, who became the second most decorated foreign player in La Liga history over eight seasons.

Caceres ‘few days away’ for Saints

Southampton boss Claude Puel confirms his club are close to signing Martin Caceres but admits the defender’s arrival is not yet “reality”.

The Saints are awaiting a work permit for ex-Juventus centre-back and Milan target Caceres, who is set to join on a free transfer after agreeing personal terms, but Puel is refusing to count his chickens before they hatch.

“In the next few days, we’ll see if he can bring something for the squad and if he signs,” the Coach said at a Press conference.

Caceres has Southampton medical

Former Juventus defender Martin Caceres could join former Napoli forward Manolo Gabbiadini at Southampton.

The 29-year-old has been a free agent since being released by the Bianconeri last summer, but moves to Trabzonspor and Fiorentina broke down after the medical stage of the transfer.

Milan were the latest club to deal with the player, but after an extensive medical the move ultimately collapsed due to wage demands.

Caceres passed, but according to Calciomercato.it and Gazzamercato, talks are on the verge of breaking down over wage demands.

Caceres passes Milan medical

Martin Caceres has reportedly passed his Milan medical, and will now work out personal terms.

Caceres flies in for Milan medical

Martin Caceres has landed in Italy and will undergo a medical with Milan tomorrow, preparing to sign the four-month contract.

The Uruguay international has been a free agent since his contract with Juventus expired in July 2016.

He had been very close to several clubs during the last few weeks, including Fiorentina and Crystal Palace, but both times the move fell apart.

It’s reported that was due to his excessive wage demands more than the failure of a medical.
