The former Barcelona man, like Mendy, Walker and Bertrand, is also keen to link up with Pep Guardiola and City sources expect the team to agree personal terms swiftly.

The Brazilian looks destined to sign for Manchester City on a two-year contract once he has come to an agreement with Juve over the early termination of the two-year deal he signed with them in the summer of 2016.

Alves met with Juve officials on Monday afternoon and decided on his next move.

The 100-times capped worldwide only completed a transfer to the Juventus Stadium last July after his contract at the Nou Camp ran out, but Alves' stay in Italy is now pretty much over as he looks to part ways with Massimiliano Allegri's side.

However, Guardiola could expect to some stiff competition for the 34-year-old from Premier League champions Chelsea.

DANI ALVES could have his Juventus contract cancelled - and that would open up the possibility of talks with Chelsea and Manchester City, according to reports in Italy.

But Alves recovered and went onto excel for Massimiliano Allegri's side, proving an important figure in their Serie A title-winning run and progress to the Champions League final, where they lost 4-1 to Real Madrid.

City had been willing to pay a relatively low amount to sign the Brazilian, now thought to be around £5 million, though Alves could yet rescind his contract with the Turin club and join on a free.
