Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has expressed his interest Juventus’ Dani Alves to fortify his full-back options.
Manchester City is lacking an experienced right-back after releasing out-of-contract duo Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna.
Guardiola has been linked with Tottenham’s Kyle Walker but is to be considering whether to bid for 34-year-old Alves, who played for Juve in their Champions League final loss to Real Madrid on 3 June.
It is thought Juventus want £5m for Alves.
Guardiola knows Alves well having brought the Brazil international to Barcelona from Sevilla for £23m in 2008.
The pair won three La Liga titles, two Spanish Cups and two Champions Leagues together before Guardiola left the Nou Camp in 2012.
