In a short statement, the Serie A champions noted Alves’ achievements in his one-year stay in Turin, which included a sixth consecutive Italian league title and Coppa Italia triumph. He also reached the Champions League final with Juve in a year where the 34-year-old showed he is still one of the best right-backs in football.

Alves is now expected to join Manchester City imminently, with an announcement possible before the end of the week.
