Alves completes free transfer to Juventus


Dani Alves has completed a free transfer from Barcelona to Juventus after completing a medical in Turin today.
The 33-year-old, who leaves Barca after eight successful seasons, has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with Juventus.
‘Having arrived in Turin last night, Alves arrived at J-Medical this morning, where he is carrying out routine tests ahead of a proposed move to Juventus,’ the club said in a statement.
He won three Champions League trophies, three European Super Cups, three Club World Cups and six La Liga titles with Barcelona.
He has signed a deal at Juventus as he becomes the club’s second summer signing following the acquisition of Bosnia and Herzegovina midfielder, Miralem Pjanic from Roma earlier this month.
Juventus won their fifth straight Serie A title last term and also lifted the Coppa Italia.
“I have won a lot of trophies with Barcelona but the time has come to enjoy Italy and try to bring Juventus back to the European top,” Alves said.
Alves added, “But it is more of a see-you-later than a farewell with Barcelona. Sooner or later, I will return to Barcelona. I am still a fan of Barca.”
