It’s believe that Ibrox boss has been given a personal assurance from his compatriot Bruno Alves has agreed to join Rangers. According to SunSport via The Scottish Sun reveal the 35-year-old Euro 2016 winner is now set to become Pedro Caixinha’s first summer signing as Rangers boss.
As the Portuguese man summer revolution begins, it’s understood the Gers gaffer has been assured from his fellow Portuguese that he is moving to Rangers. The club’s hierarchy are now locked in talks with Alves’ current club Cagliari, who will half-heartedly allow the Euro 2016 winner to leave.
The Portuguese man has one year left on his current deal with the La Liga giants, but a deal is close to being completed and he could arrive in Scotland next week. It’s a huge boost for Ibrox gaffer, who had placed the no-nonsense stopper at the top of his summer wish-list.
Clint Hill and Philippe Senderos will both leave the club after Sunday’s Premiership game against St. Johnstone. The Portuguese manager is strongly interest in bringing in experience player to his side and see Alaves as the perfect role model for up-and-coming kids like David Bates and Myles Beerman.
The Gers boss will also scout further, with the likes of Martyn Waghorn, Rob Kiernan, Josh Windass, Michael O’Halloran and Harry Forrester future with the clubs not curtained. With his deal for Bruno Alves almost done, Rangers will also step up interest in Aberdeen skipper Ryan Jack.
