Manchester City filled a key hole on the pitch by signing Dani Alves to man the right fullback position. They only spent £5M to land him from the Italian giants (Juventus), announced by the club.
It will be a two-year deal that will keep the Brazilian in Manchester City. He will take over Bacary Sagna’s roster spot, as his contract ends after this month.
The team has been linked and trying to pursue Tottenham’s right fullback Kyle Walker, but he is too much and Tottenham does not want to sell him to a rival in the Premier League.
Alves is only joining Manchester City due to the fact he liked playing for Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola from their tenure together at Barcelona.
Finally, Alves is still one of the best overall fullbacks in the world and especially on the offensive side of the pitch.
2016-2017 combined Serie A & UCL stats: 23 games, 5 goals, 6 assists.
