From Italy: Chances ‘are rising’ for Brazil legend to join Manchester City next summer

He famously snubbed Manchester City at the last minute in the summer of 2017, but Brazilian right-back legend Dani Alves could belatedly reunite with Pep Guardiola next year.

The Paris Saint-Germain star was all set for a move to the Etihad in Pep Guardiola’s before the Ligue 1 giants hijacked the move, luring him to the French capital to play alongside Neymar.

Alves, though, has made it clear that he dreams of playing in the Premier League before he hangs up his boots, and according to Italian news agency ANSA that could lead to him joining City next summer.

The 35-year-old is out of contract at PSG in June and will be available on a free transfer, and it is claimed by ANSA that the chances of him joining City ‘are rising’.

Guardiola is said to have valued Alves, a star in his famous Barcelona side, more than any other coach and could still utilise his experience despite a preference for younger players.

City have two established right-backs already in Kyle Walker and Alves’ compatriot Danilo, but the latter has been troubled by injury problems and has made just 4 appearances in all competitions this season.
