Who is Danilo?

Danilo Luiz da Silva, better known by his nickname Danilo, is a Brazilian footballer who plays right-back for Serie A club Juventus and the Brazilian national team. Danilo began his professional career at América Mineiro before joining Santos, where he scored the game-winning goal in the 2011 Copa Libertadores.

He went to Porto in January 2012, where he won two straight Primeira Liga titles. After a €31.5 million transfer price, he joined Real Madrid in 2015. He joined Manchester City in 2017. Danilo joined Juventus in 2019, after winning two Premier League crowns, an FA Cup, and two EFL Cups with City. In his first season with the club, he won the Serie A title. Danilo earned his first senior Brazil cap in 2011, and he went on to win the 2011 U-20 World Cup and a silver medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics. He competed for his country in the 2018 FIFA World Cup and the Copa América in 2021.

Danilo Luiz da Silva was born on July 15, 1991, in Bicas, Brazil. Jose Luiz da Silva and Maria Jose da Silva are his parents’ only children. He is of South American ethnicity and possesses Brazilian nationality. He started playing football when he was nine years old.

Danilo is married to Clarice, his long-time love. Miguel, the couple’s first child, was born on April 9, 2015. Danilo and his girlfriend previously revealed that their wedding will take place on June 30, 2017. In Brazil, they married on the scheduled date. Most of his Real Madrid and national colleagues, as well as Marcelo, Ronaldo, and Ramos, were present at the ceremony. Danilo was dressed in blue clothes, while his wife wore a white gown and held their son. The couple spends a lot of time together and is frequently seen out at night for supper.

Danilo was compared to fellow Brazilian right-back Dani Alves by Marca in 2012, who described him as “a hardworking right defender with an aggressive streak and a polished technique.” His constant sprints up and down the wing also help him to develop into a robust defender who can sweep the ball and anticipate the action.

Danilo was born in the state of Minas Gerais, in the state of Brazil. Tupynambás and América Mineiro were his junior clubs, and he played senior football with the latter club in the Campeonato Mineiro and Série C, winning the latter in 2009 and securing promotion. Danilo was traded to Santos in May 2010. DIS Esporte bought 37.5 percent of his economic rights for free, Santos got another 37.5 percent for free, and América kept the remaining 25%. In 2011, he won the Campeonato Paulista and spent two seasons with the squad in Série A. Danilo started both legs of the 2011 Copa Libertadores Finals against Pearol, the first in central midfield and the second at right-back, and scored the game-winning goal in a 2–1 triumph after a goalless first encounter.

Danilo signed for Portuguese club Porto on a contract extending until June 2016 in early January 2012, following the 2011 FIFA Club World Cup. Porto paid a €13 million transfer fee. A €50 million release clause was incorporated in his contract. He began as Cristian Săpunaru’s backup but quickly advanced to the first choice, with compatriot Alex Sandro – who signed at the same time – playing on the other defensive wing as the Vtor Pereira-led side won back-to-back Primeira Liga titles. Danilo equalized at 1–1 away to Basel in the Champions League round of 16 on 18 February with a penalty kick, his fourth competitive goal of the 2014–15 season.

Danilo was set to join Real Madrid in July 2015, with the Spaniards paying a €31.5 million transfer fee and signing him to a six-year contract. On the 23rd of August, he made his debut in a goalless draw at Sporting Gijón, which also served as the season opener. In a 3–1 away win against Celta de Vigo on October 24, he scored his first goal for the team. Danilo made seven appearances in the 2015–16 Champions League season, helping Real Madrid win the competition.

Danilo played 17 matches and scored one goal as the team won La Liga for the first time in five years in 2016–17, benefiting from severe health issues suffered by Carvajal. He also appeared in three Champions League matches for Madrid, helping the club capture its second consecutive Champions League crown.

Danilo signed a five-year contract with Manchester City in the English Premier League on July 23, 2017, for a reported £26.5 million transfer fee. On December 23, he scored his first goal for his new club, replacing Fabian Delph late in a home match against AFC Bournemouth and scoring the game’s final goal in a 4–0 victory.

Danilo signed a five-year contract with Serie A winners Juventus on August 7, 2019, after Juventus paid a €37 million transfer fee. Joo Cancelo was part of a part-exchange deal that saw him join Manchester City. Danilo made his Juventus debut against Napoli on August 31, scoring the first goal of a 4–3 home triumph, which was also the fastest goal scored by a foreign player in Serie A at the time. Following a 0–0 draw after regulation time in the 2020 Coppa Italia Final against Napoli on June 17, Danilo missed Juventus’ second spot-kick in the ensuing shoot-out, sending the ball over the crossbar. Napoli won the match on penalties 4–2 in the end.

At the age of 20, Danilo made his debut for Brazil on September 14, 2011, in the first leg of the Superclásico de las Américas, a 0–0 away draw against Argentina (2–0 aggregate win). In the same year, he made his FIFA U-20 World Cup debut for the under-20s, winning the event in Colombia. Danilo competed in the 2012 Summer Olympics for the under-23 team. He scored against New Zealand in the group stage (3–0) and played four matches for Brazil on their way to the silver medal.

Danilo was also nominated to Tite’s team for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, where he made his debut on June 17th by playing the full 1–1 draw against Switzerland. He suffered an injury on July 6, the day before the quarter-final match against Belgium, and was forced to sit out the rest of the tournament. Danilo scored his first senior international goal in a 3–0 friendly triumph over South Korea in Abu Dhabi on November 19, 2019. He was named to Brazil’s roster for the 2021 Copa América, which will be held on home soil, in June 2021.
