Brazilian star, Daniel Alves is billed to join Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho at Manchester City Next Week. 

The 34-year-old became a free agent last month after he left Juventus and will sign a two-year deal with the Citizens after undergoing the routine medicals.

Alves is keen to reunite with his former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium and fulfill his fantasy of playing in the premier league.

According to The Mirror, the Alves deal delayed because the player spent time back in South America on holidays during which period he attended the marriage ceremony of close friend Lionel Messi last weekend.

Turkish giants Fenerbahce are also interested in the Brazilian but he is focused on joining Manchester City and will meet his new teammates next week before jetting off for the club's pre-season tour of the United States.

Alves will join the likes of Ederson and Bernardo Silva as the latest arrivals for Manchester City this summer when he completes his deal next week.
