Catalan giants Barcelona have rejected the opportunity to sign Liverpool right-back Nathaniel Clyne, despite still needing a replacement for the departed Dani Alves, according to the Sunday Times
“It’s a real honour to be here. I chose Juventus because the club has a great dream that I want to help make a reality. I know Juve have not won the Champions League for a long time and they want to combine their great domestic success with a European crown.” Alves told the Juventus official website.
This turned their attention to Clyne, who had been offered by Liverpool ahead of a potential deal. However, Barcelona turned down the deal due to financial instability following Neymar's new bumper contract signing.
The Times report that due to Neymar's new deal, Luis Enrique's side lack flexibility in the transfer market and may be forced to turn to January signing Aleix Vidal for a full-time Dani Alves replacement.
