Pep Guardiola lines up Manchester City reunion with Dani Alves

And the City boss still wants Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker

Pep Guardiola is getting the band back together.

The Manchester City boss is reportedly lining up a bid for Juventus right-back Dani Alves to solve his full-back conundrum.

Guardiola managed the Brazilian in his time at Barcelona, while Alves moved to the Old Lady last season and has enjoyed a successful year, winning the Serie A title and getting through to the final of the Champions League.

On Saturday Alves’ team-mate Gonzalo Higuain accidentally posted a farewell message to Alves, suggesting Alves may be leaving the Italian side.

And The Sun report Guardiola wants 34-year-old Alves to bring stability to the City defence.

Not content with just one right-back, Guardiola is also reportedly still in the market for Spurs defender Kyle Walker, with a move still on the cards despite the club moving for Alves.

Two right-backs, Pep? What are you scheming?

There can only be one thing for it – Pep Guardiola is planning to deploy a lopsided 4-4-2 formation next season. And we can’t wait.
