Juventus have agreed Dani Alves can leave the club this summer and talks are under way to secure an early release from his contract.

The Brazilian right-back, formerly of Barcelona, has been widely linked with a possible switch to Manchester City.

Juventus chief executive Giuseppe Marotta said on Wednesday, according to Tuttosport: "We're not talking about a breakdown in the relationship, it's motivation that is fundamental for players.

"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.

"There's certainly sadness because of what's been said, but I can confirm there's been no breakdown in our relationship."

Alves joined Juventus from Barcelona 12 months ago, signing an initial two-year contract with the option for a third year.
