If Juventus wanted a quick resolution to their hunt to replace Dani Alves, then it looks like they’re about to see it happen.
According to Spanish outlet Diario AS, Juventus and Real Madrid have agreed to a €20 million transfer fee to bring right back Danilo to Turin this summer. Having already reportedly agreed to personal terms with the 25-year-old Brazilian, Juventus’ one final step was to try and find an agreement with the club they lost to in the Champions League final on the first Saturday of June last month.
And now apparently we have that final step done.
We’ll be waiting with our “OFFICIALLY OFFICIAL” post, Beppe.
Danilo, signed by Real Madrid two summers ago for €31.5 million from Porto, has become expendable with the emergence of Dani Carvajal is the two-time European champions’ starting right back. A former teammate of a certain Alex Sandro, Danilo hasn’t lived up to the lofty transfer fee and has now obviously been put on the market, with Juventus seemingly becoming the most likely destination.
The €20 million price tag comes after reports came about last week that Juventus’ first bid of €15 million was rejected by Real Madrid. Not that Real rejecting some kind of initial bid like that is any kind of surprise knowing how much they spent for Danilo a couple of years ago. But it has become quite clear over the last week or so that, according to what has been publicized in both the Spanish and Italian press, that Danilo has emerged as Juve’s top choice to replace Dani Alves.
And if AS is on the money with this one, Juve may soon officially have their guy.
