Real Madrid right-back Danilo might be joining Juventus this summer, according to Cadena SER. Both clubs started negotiating a deal and while Real Madrid want at least €30 million to let him go, Juventus would rather get Danilo on a loan deal which could turn into a mandatory signing in 2018.

Either way, it looks like Danilo could be leaving Real Madrid soon enough. He signed for Los Blancos two summers ago and was expected to be a much more relevant player. Danilo performed well enough last season but he was an undisputed reserve behind Dani Carvajal ever since he signed for Madrid.

Juventus need a replacement for Dani Alves, who will be leaving the club this summer as well, so signing Danilo definitely makes sense for them. Real Madrid could use Nacho as a backup for Carvajal next season if they finally decide to part ways with the Brazilian right-back.
