Confident Guardiola backs Man City: 'We'll be better next season'

Pep Guardiola is splashing cash as he prepares for his second season in the Premier League

According to the Italian Coach Giuseppe Marotta in an interview last Wednesday, Dani Alves asked to leave Juventus for Manchester City and reunite with Pep Guardiola, his former coach.

Alves worked with Guardiola during the City boss' highly successful four seasons in charge of Barcelona, winning the Champions League twice in that span.

The 25-year old signed for Real for a fee of £27 million from Porto in 2015, and though he's won two Champions Leagues and one La Liga title, his time at the Bernabeu has been underwhelming as he has struggled to nail down a regular starting spot.

Earlier this week, Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta confirmed the Brazilian global has asked to leave the Serie A champions this summer.

"Alves has realised he has a desire to try a new experience, so we're trying to reach a mutual termination of his contract and we wish him good luck".




The Brazilian continued: "I don't know what is happening".

Alves told Conversa com Bial: "I don't know what's going on".

Alves said: 'Leaving Juve on a free transfer? Have I asked to leave? "Well, everyone knows my admiration for Pep Guardiola..."

"If I get out (of Juventus), it'll be without any fights, no problems, contrary to what they're saying".

Manager Pep Guardiola must look to boost his options in both full back positions, given that right backs Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna were both released at the end of last season, as was left back Gael Clichy.
