Juventus preparing move for Real Madrid right-back
Real Madrid right-back Danilo has emerged as a surprise target for Juventus ahead of the summer transfer window.
According to the football transfer rumours in Italian Media (Tutto Juve), Juventus are preparing move for Real Madrid right-back Danilo.
The Brazil international was signed by Real Madrid in July 2015 from Porto for a fee of 31.5 million euros. The 25-year-old has a valid contract with Real Madrid until June 2021.
Since his arrival from Porto, Danilo has scored 3 goals and provided 9 assists in 56 games for Real Madrid, including one goal and provided three assists in 25 games in all competitions this season.
The 25-year-old is considered to be one of the best right-backs in Brazil.
The Brazil international has been in fine form for Real Madrid this season.
Danilo has represented Brazil at Under-20 level, winning 15 caps and scoring 2 goals, before making his senior international debut in September 2015. As a member of Brazil national football team, Danilo has won 16 caps and has scored one goal.
Adding a right-back remains Juventus’s top priority this summer and Massimiliano Allegri will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming weeks.
The Brazil international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of defensive player Massimiliano Allegri wants to target in the summer transfer window.
Massimiliano Allegri will reportedly be handed a huge transfer kitty this summer and the Real Madrid right-back is thought to be among the manager’s priorities.
Juventus are in the market for just a handful of statement signings this summer who can improve the first-team.
The Brazil international will definitely be a good addition to the Juventus side, which will be competing in the Champions League next season.
According to the report from Italian Media, Juventus want Danilo to be replacement for Dani Alves and Real Madrid would let the Brazil international go for 19-20 million euros.
Danilo would reportedly be interested in a move this summer, but if Juventus do want him, they will have to beat those other interested clubs to his signature.
