Dani Alves

The legendary Brazilian defender gave up the chance to reunite with ex-Barcelona boss Guardiola while heading to Paris Saint-Germain.


What does Dani Alves regret

Dani Alves has achieved a lot in a distinguished career at the very top of the game, but the legendary Brazilian defender admits that he regrets giving up his chance to join Man City in 2017. One of the best full-backs ever to play the game was preparing to cut ties with Juve at that stage, after just one season at Turin, and had various options to consider how he plotted another move. They started talking about reuniting with the ex-Barcelona boss Guardiola in England, but Dani Alves decided to go to France, as he contacted Neymar’s fellow countryman for a memorable summer for those in the Parc des Princes.

Dani, the most decorated player of all time, has amassed six trophies in two enjoyable seasons with Paris Saint-Germain, but admits he would be in Manchester if he could turn the clock back. Dani says he regrets not going to Man City to work with Pep Guardiola again. Dani, who has now returned to his homeland from São Paulo, added that when you are with people like Pep, who always finds a way out, it adds a lot to you and regrets not working with him anymore. But not for Paris Saint-Germain, because the story of Alves living in Paris Saint-Germain was incredible.


Alves signed for PSG instead

Summer 2017 was a busy summer for Pep at the Etihad Stadium. After finishing his first season in English football empty-handed, the Catalan set about strengthening his ranks with thoughtful spending. Ederson, Bernardo Silva, Danilo and Benjamin Mendy were all cut off, while Kyle Walker was also valued at £ 50 million by Tottenham. He ended up filling the back of a right-back that Dani could have taken as the Blues moved in a different direction with an international from England who is now seeking to help them land their first Champions League crown.
