Guardiola hoping to seal City's Alves marriage

The Man City boss is sure to have plenty to discuss with the Brazil right-back, who are just two of the 300 invited guests to the lavish nuptials taking place at the City Center Resort complex in Rosario, Argentina.

Juventus formally announced on Thursday they have released 34-year-old Alves from the final year of his contract, having received a personal plea from the former Barcelona legend.

Alves has an offer on the table from Chelsea but it's believed City have won the race for his signature thanks to him working previously under Guardiola at Camp Nou.

Alves has flown in from Brazil by private jet and Guardiola, who promoted Messi to the Barcelona first team, are seemingly now poised to toast more than just the bride and groom.

City insiders claim Alves has been offered a two-year deal worth around £100,000-per-week before bonuses and it could be announced early next week.
