Dani Alves was one of the best players of the season for Juventus and he helped the ‘Vecchia Signora’ to reach the Champions League final with great performances against Mónaco in the semi-finals. However, the former FC Barcelona player has a special character and the Italian club has already confirmed that the Brazilian footballer won’t continue another year in Torino. Now they need to find a replacement and Danilo is the first option.
Real Madrid didn’t think about selling Danilo at the end of the season and the player said in a recent interview with a Brazilian TV Channel that he wants to show his quality in the third season with Los Blancos. Therefore, no one could think that Danilo may leave the club in the summer. But Juventus interest change everything and the Brazilian could play the next season for the Champions League runners-up.
According to the Spanish radiostation Cadena Ser, both team are already negotiating the terms and conditions of the agreement. Real Madrid would like to receive around €30M, the same amount the paid to Porto two seasons ago. However, the Italian club prefers a loan for the next season with a buy-clause for the season 2018-19. At the moment, the agreement seems far but the positions could get closer in the following days.
Danilo lost his place in the starting eleven due to Carvajal’s great performances. The Spaniard is one of the best right-backs of the world, so Danilo had to be on the bench most of the season. The Brazilian had the opportunity to play the Champions League semi-finals, for instance, but he has never shown a great level with Los Blancos. Danilo seems nervous and not really fit, although Zidane trusts the player and the manager thinks he could be a great player in the future.
Juventus first option is Danilo but they have another players in mind to replace Dani Alves. Matteo Darmian, Manchester United player, could be his second option for the right back. He’s Italian, he has experience in the Serie A and he’s cheaper than Danilo, so it should be a good option as well.
