Liverpool Battle Juve For Danilo



Real Madrid right back Danilo is on the radar of Juventus of Italy and he could be one of the options for Florentino Pérez to earn some cash and after invest it in other players.
According to the Italian website, Calcio Mercato, Liverpool and Juventus are fighting to sign Danilo in the next summer transfer window.
The Brazilian is now always on the bench and Daniel Carvajal is the owner of this spot in the defensive line.
He’s only 25 years old, so he could find a top club to fight for a position in the starting eleven. Besides, Real Madrid can already cash in some money, so the options for him to leave are very high.
According to the Italian site, Juventus think that Dani Alves could leave the club to go to China and Lichsteiner is not young any more. For this reason, Danilo could be a good option for the Italian giants.
On the other hand, Liverpool need more competitors for Nathaniel Clyne, so Danilo could improve the quality of the squad.
Real Madrid paid €31.5M for Danilo two years ago. In the first season, Danilo started the season in the line-up, playing up to 24 games in La Liga. However, Carvajal started to improve and won the position, playing the most important games of the season, including the Champions League final.
This season, Carvajal is the owner of the right back position and Danilo is only playing to give some rest to the Spaniard. Besides, the Brazilian has completed some poor performances, like the one against Sevilla, scoring an own goal.
Danilo has played only nine games in La Liga this season.
However, if Real Madrid decide to sell him the prize would be high. Porto signed him for €13M from Santos in 2011.
Los Blancos paid a high transfer fee for the player and Florentino Pérez expects to get some money out of him in this transfer window.
