He said it to the players before telling the club
After the double party, Dani Alves announced to the other players he would leave the club this summer and would go to Juventus. The news surprised everyone, as well as the club, as the board didn't know anything of this information and discovered it through the press, as explained today by the newspaper Mundo Deportivo.
The board is very upset with the Brazilian and don't understand why he did not communicate it to the sports management. They were aware that Alves has a clause in the contract that allows him to leave the club for free if doing it before June 5 but they consider they were the first to know.
According to these reports, the precipitation of Dani Alves to communicate it to the players caused his agent to come out in the media to deny an agreement with Juve. However, the verbal agreement with the Italian team is closed and is expected to be made official in the coming days.
The player wants to try a new experience in Turin, where Juve can offer a longer contract and a better salary. At 33, the future of the better right-back of the history of the club seems far from Camp Nou.
