The Brazil international will leave Catalonia after eight years and 23 major honours with the Camp Nou club in favour of a switch to the Italian giants this summer.

Barcelona full-back Dani Alves will join Serie A winners Juventus this week on a two-year contract, TOPKONK can reveal.

The 33-year-old is expected to earn around €4 million-per-year during his stay in Turin, with the option of an additional year inserted into his contract.

The marauding right-back brings with him a wealth of international experience, having won 89 caps for his country, and is highly regarded by Massimiliano Allegri, who is eager to stamp his authority on Europe.
