After much speculation, it has been confirmed that Dani Alves will be ending his glorious eight-year stay at Barcelona this summer.

Confirming the departure, Barcelona Sporting Director Robert Fernandez said, "Dani Alves has decided to leave. It's a personal decision that we respect. At right-back we have confidence in Aleix Vidal, he was signed for that reason. We also have Sergi Roberto."

It is expected that Alves will now be making a move to Italian giants Juventus and the 33-year-old is reportedly set to sign a three-year deal with the Italian champions as he continues his illustrious career elsewhere.
