Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have confirmed the signing of Brazilian right-back Dani Alves. The Brazilian whose spell at Juventus ended last season turned down a chance to reunite with his former boss, Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
The 34 year-old rejected City’s £115,000 a week contract to sign PSG’s £240,000 a week offer, a move that left few fans disappointed .
Disgusted in Dani Alves. Wish I never drew a picture of him and sent it into to Match Magazine in 2009.

And he addressed their grievances in a PSG press conference: “”There’s a very interesting project in Paris,” he said. “I have friends here, I’m a man who loves challenges. If Pep and Man City feel hurt, I’m sorry. I have come here to be a champion. I‘ve had the pleasure of winning the Champions League three times and I want to bring my experience here. “The President had a great power of persuasion. I like to make history. We can write it together here. The work that the club has been doing over the past several years is very encouraging. It’s an ambitious team.”
Dani Alves has won 33 career trophies at club level: 28 in Spain, 3 in Brazil , 2 in Italy.
