Dani Alves snub Manchester City for PSG 

​Dani Alves is near completion of a move to Paris Saint-Germain after weeks of reports that the defender was set to join Manchester City.

The Brazilian was released from the final year of his contract with Juventus last month with a view to being reunited with Pep Guardiola at City, but instead is set to sign a two-year contract at PSG, according to multiple reports.

The 34-year-old was pictured having a medical in Paris on Tuesday, and L’Equipe reported he should be introduced this week before PSG leave for its U.S. tour.

Alves worked under Guardiola at Barcelona, winning the Champions League twice and La Liga three times in an extraordinary four years for the coach.

Amid his departure from Juventus, the right-back went so far as to say: “Everyone knows about my admiration for Pep Guardiola,” and City were eager to sign him, but the mutual attraction appears to have come to naught.

City are still without a senior recognised right-back after releasing Pablo Zabaleta, Bacary Sagna and Gael Clichy at the end of the their contracts.
