Juventus want to sign both Dani Alves and Javier Mascherano from Barcelona this summer but will have to find €30million to land the latter.

Juve have offered both players three-year contracts to move to Turin, according to reports from Italy, but Mascherano will not be allowed to leave Barca on the cheap, with his release clause set at €100million.

Alves, however, has a clause in his deal which allows him to leave the Nou Camp for free this summer, a year before his contract expires.

Juve could scupper the plans of top Premier League clubs with their business as both Alves and Mascherano have been linked with moves to England.

Alves’ agent said last week he had met with clubs in Turkey, England and France as well as Juve, while Mascherano has been linked with Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City.

Liverpool, meanwhile, are said to want Aleix Vidal, but Barca are said to want £45million for the right-back or winger as they prepare to say goodbye to Alves.
