Pep Guardiola 'fuming' at Dani Alves' Man City snub

Dani Alves

Brazilian full-back Dani Alves is closing in on a move to Paris Saint Germain (PSG) after a profuse offer from the former French champions.

The Italian midfielder has since apologised for his representative and distanced himself from the remarks and now Alves has also called on Verratti to honour his contract in Paris.

"I am extremely pleased to join Paris Saint-Germain", Alves said.

With a deal thought to be a formality, Alves has instead joined PSG, reportedly his wife's desire to live in Paris was a determining factor.

A long-term replacement for Antonio Valencia is needed and Matteo Darmian has failed to hold down a regular spot under Mourinho so Aurier could be the answer to his problems.

"There was not only interest from Manchester City but from other English clubs", he said at his unveiling, in quotes carried by L'Equipe.

"Frustration? Here's an example".

The contract should also envisage the option to make the move of the 26-year-old permanent for €40 million.

"But I have come here to be a champion".

Dani Alves is a piece of hot cake at the moment, but not everyone can get a piece.

Free-agent Alves would have proved a quality and affordable for Guardiola, and a very logical one given the good relationship they had at Barcelona.

The former Barcelona star insisted he picked France because it is there he feels he has a better chance of winning a fourth Champions League title.

However, over the weekend, PSG contacted Alves' representatives and gazumped Guardiola's agreement.

"Another thing which really counted was the wellbeing of my wife, the prospect of spending some time in a city like Paris enchanted her".

The Ligue 1 runners up have confirmed they have completed the signing of the 34-year-old on a two year deal.

"I recognise the ambitions of my new club and the expectations of our many supporters around the world".
