Dani Alves to Chelsea? Yeah, right.
I was going to ignore this, but sadly the Mail published it with an actual byline (what up, Sami Mokbel), which means that someone was willing to put their name behind this thing and face ... well probably no consequences at all if he got it wrong.
Dani Alves left Barcelona last summer after feeling disrespected and he’s certainly had the last laugh by making it to the Champions League final by beating Barcelona with Juventus. Should they win today, they’d complete a mighty impressive treble. He does have another year left in Turin, but maybe he’s looking for a new contract extension, so his agent’s gone to work to spread some interest.
Or perhaps he truly does want to come to England. He may be 34, but Juve managed his game time excellently (played in only 50 per cent of league matches) and so when he’s played, he’s been fresh and excellent (and even set a new career high with six goals scored!). As a rotation option at wing-back, he could be wonderful. I really don’t see it happening, but you never truly know for sure in football.
On a related note, be sure to read this; it’s pretty good.
