Dani Alves angrily denies Paris Saint-Germain transfer rumours

Published Add your comment

Barcelona defender Dani Alves has angrily denied the speculation that he's signed a deal with Paris Saint-Germain.

The Brazilian is out of contract in the summer at the Nou Camp and is yet to agree a new deal there.


He's been heavily linked with a move to the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea in recent months, but Radio Marca claimed this week the a move to the Parc des Prince was in place for the end of the current campaign.

However the 31-year-old, who joined Barcelona from Sevilla, posted a message on his Instagram page today denying the rumours - and pointing to Marca's history of incorrect reports over his future. 


The picture, of two previous Marca front pages with stories about moves to Madrid and to Chelsea, was accompanied with the caption: "You really believe what they say? Tired of listening to people talking shit. I love this club to death and I'd stay forever. And if one day I have to leave, I'd have the same guts that brought me here to say it, I won't need any sheep to do the talking."

Alves has made 30 appearances for Barcelona this season and is a first-team regular under new boss Luis Enrique, and evidently is holding out hope that he will still be with the club next season. 

Manchester United look in desperate need of a right-back having deployed winger Antonio Valencia there this season, with Rafael seemingly not fancied by boss Louis van Gaal. 


The Red Devils purchased Luke Shaw over the summer on the other side of defence, while Chelsea signed Filipe Luis from Atletico Madrid - although that deal has gone sour and he could leave Stamford Bridge in the summer.

The Blues have one of the most consistent performers in the Premier League at right-back in Cesar Azpilicueta.


Dani Alves has been for a long time now one of the best full-backs in Europe. But whether he is right for the Premier League at his age is another thing. 

Paris Saint-Germain may instead be the better move for him given its slower tempo compared to the English top flight - however, wherever he ends up it's nice to see a top-level footballer coming out to address the transfer gossip once and for all. 

If only there were more out there like him.

Who do you think Dani Alves should join at the end of the season?
