Juventos consider Real Madrid defender

Juventus have targeted Real Madrid full-back Danilo as the replacement for Dani Alves, with a deal of €20m possible, say reports.

Sky Sport Italia report the former FC Porto defender has been earmarked by the Italian champions to replace Alves, who terminated his contract at the club as he moves closer to a deal at Manchester City.

Madrid signed Danilo from the Portuguese giants two years ago in a €31.5m deal and despite making 40 La Liga appearances, failed to impress in his stint at the Bernabeu where he was largely Dani Carvajal’s understudy.

The report states Juve are offering €15m plus bonuses for the full back although Madrid may not be willing to negotiate below their asking price.
