Brazil international, Dani Alves has agreed on a two-year contract with Manchester City his move is expected to be confirmed after his contract situation at Juventus is sorted out.
Dani met with Juve chiefs on Monday afternoon to establish talks on how to move on after losing the Champions League trophy last month.
City had been willing to pay a relatively low amount to sign the former Barca star, now thought to be around £5 million, though Alves could yet rescind his contract with the Turin club and join on a free.
There have been reports that he has already reached an agreement to become a free agent, though Juve are yet to officially confirm that to the stock exchange, as they are compelled to do.

Although those final details are yet to be ironed out, a media report said Alves has already reached a verbal agreement with City over the terms of a two-year contract.
It is reported in Italy that he will earn around £4.3m per year, which works out at roughly £85,000 per week – the same wage packet offered to Nolito last summer.
Gazzetta dello Sport revealed at the start of the season that Alves earns roughly £60,000 per week plus bonuses in Turin, having previously taken home £100,000 a week in Barcelona.
City sources expect the deal to be completed shortly, barring any unforeseen issues, and it is possible that Juventus will make their position on Alves official in the next 48 hours.
