Gianluca Di Marzio Says Bruno Alves is About to Sign For Parma

Gianluca Di Marzio Says Bruno Alves is About to Sign For Parma

Respected Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio says Bruno Alves is about to quit Rangers for Parma.

The Portuguese defender has been at the World Cup with his country over the last few weeks, but failed to play a game as they bowed out in the quarter finals after a tight defeat to Uruguay.

And he no doubt had one eye on his future while off the pitch, with Steven Gerrard already well into rebuilding Rangers.

Gerrard has signed Nikola Katic and Connor Goldson as centre half options now and Alves may have had a tough time battling for a first team spot.

At 36 and with a year left on his current contract, that’s not an ideal situation for a player who will no doubt want to play on a regular basis.

And now it seems Parma have stepped in to give him a route out of Scotland, with gianlucadimarzio.com reporting today that an agreement has been reached and Alves is in Italy undergoing a medical with the Serie A club.

In his year at Ibrox, Alves made just 25 appearances for Rangers, failing to really find any consistent form under Pedro Caixinha and then Graeme Murty.
