Dani Alves To Snub Manchester City For PSG
Paris Saint-Germain are holding a news conference on Wednesday where it is expected they will announce they have signed Dani Alves.
The right back, who negotiated a mutual termination of his contract at Juventus last month, had been set to join Pep Guardiola’s squad this week.
However, sources said PSG made a last-minute effort to lure Alves, 34, to Parc des Princes and thanks to tireless work by sporting director Antero Henrique and his assistant Maxwell who is very close friends with Alves pulled off a significant coup to land the defender.
City need to sign full-backs this summer after Pep Guardiola decided not to renew the contracts of Pablo Zabaleta, Bacary Sagna and Gael Clichy.
Alves moved to Italy on a free transfer from Barcelona last summer.
The 34-year-old will be unveiled by the Ligue 1 club at 3pm on Wednesday afternoon.
He won the double in Italy last season and he helped Juventus reach the final of the Champions League where they lost 4-1 to Real Madrid.
