Alves joins Paris Saint-Germain on free transfer

Dani Alves has completed a surprise move to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), the French club said on Wednesday.

“I am extremely happy to have joined PSG,” it quoted Alves to have said after signing a two-year contract following his release by Italian side Juventus.

“The past few years I saw the formidable growth of the club and its place as one of the strong teams in European football.

“It is exciting to be a part of this grand project,” added the 34-year-old full-back.

The Brazilian had seemed likely to link up with his former FC Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

Alves spent four years under Guardiola in Spain, winning the UEFA Champions League twice in that time, but a reunion never materialised.
