Chelsea interested in signing Dani Alves

  Chelsea interested in signing Dani Alves Chelsea are interested in signing Dani Alves from Juventus, according to a report from Sky Italia. The Brazilian full-back/winger is apparently seeking a new challenge as he comes to the end of his career and it looks like he has his eye on a move to England. Manchester City are keen to sign him and reports suggest that he’d be happy to work under Pep Guardiola once again but it looks like Cheslea would also like to sign him. The reported asking price for the 34-year-old is £5million which is easily affordable for both clubs so it could simply come down to a combination of who can offer the best terms and the player’s preference. Alves looks tailor-made for the right-wing back position in Antonio Conte’s Chelsea side so the reported interest in him makes sense but time will tell if he ends up playing at the Etihad or Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are the latest Premier League club to show an interest in signing Dani Alves, according to Sky in Italy.

The champions have joined Manchester City in considering a move for the Juventus right-back, who won a league and cup double last season in his first year in Italy.

Chelsea have already tried to sign Juve's left-back Alex Sandro this summer, according to the Serie A winners' general director Giuseppe Marotta.

And news of their interest in Brazilian Alves emerged hours after they joined the race to sign Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who played in both wing-back roles for Arsenal towards the end of last season.

Conte converted Victor Moses into a right wing-back early on last season, while Marcos Alonso was a regular on the left.

Moses was sent off at Wembley as Chelsea were beaten by Arsenal in the FA Cup final, earning a second yellow card for diving under close attention from Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Chelsea are yet to make a signing this summer and there have been widespread reports that Conte is frustrated by the lack of action.

But Sky in Italy say the Italian is close to signing a new contract after positive talks with the club.

Juventus confirm Alves release .
Juventus have confirmed the release of Dani Alves, paving the way for a possible reunion with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. Sky sources understand that Manchester City are interested in reuniting Alves with his former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola at the Etihad, and Juve chief Giuseppe Marotta revealed last week that the Brazilian had asked to leave the Serie A champions.Alves only joined Juve last summer and leaves midway through a two-year contract.
