PSG Signing Dani Alves Apologises for Manchester City Snub

PSG Signing Dani Alves Apologises for Manchester City Snub

The Spaniard already signed goalkeeper Ederson and attacking midfielder Bernardo Silva this transfer window, but he still needs add new faces in the full-back positions. "I hope that he can help us achieve this dream", he said. Little by little it improved and we had a good second half of the season.

But the right-back turned down the chance to reunite with Guardiola as PSG offered Alves a deal worth 14 million euros ($16 million, £12.4 million) a year, according to reports in France, twice what City had been willing to pay.

City rivals Manchester City are also admirers of the Ivory Coast international, while interest stems from around Europe in the shape of AC Milan, Juventus and Barcelona.

Reacting to his move to the Ligue 1 side, he said: "It is a great pleasure being here, it is a great pleasure to share the same dreams and it is a great pleasure to play for a high-level team like the Paris Saint-Germain".

PSG's late signing of Alves could complicate their pursuit of City's Eliaquim Mangala, with Guardiola reportedly furious about his former player's late change of heart regarding a reunion at Etihad Stadium.

PSG announced his arrival with a video of the player printing his name and number on a shirt.

Dani Alves is set to join PSG. 'However, I have come here to become a champion'.

As a result, Inter have opened talks with the reigning Premier League champions over a £35 million deal for Matic. However, I take responsibility and I made the right decision with this move.

Only a few days ago, Dani Alves' move to Manchester City appeared to be a certainty.

"I don't know if he understood my choice, I had other options".

"I have a lot of friends at this club and I got a glimpse of how it works".

Jose Mourinho is scouring the market for defensive reinforcements this summer and Aurier, among others, has emerged as a serious target.
