Dani Alves' three-word response when asked about Alexis Sanchez possibly joining PSG

It was a summer of immense spending from Paris Saint-Germain, with the Ligue 1 side completing the two most expensive deals in the history of the game.

Neymar joined from Barcelona in a €222m deal, while the Parisian's also completed the €180m signing of Monaco's Kylian Mbappe, although, they will not have to pay the enormous fee until next summer.

However, their best deal of the summer was arguably bringing in the vastly experienced Dani Alves on a free transfer, after the Brazilian right-back mutually terminated his contract with Juventus after just one year.

Despite the fact that PSG already possessed a very competent player in Belgian international Thomas Meunier for the role, Alves has been brilliant since his arrival.

He looks as good and fit as ever, with his place in the Brazilian starting XI still pretty much guaranteed.


Alves was included in the Selecao's lineup for their final qualifying game at home against Chile, a game in which Tite's side strolled to a 3-0 victory.

A Gabriel Jesus brace and a Paulinho goal sealed the three points, with Alves crucial in marking Alexis Sanchez out of the game.

The Arsenal man - who is in the final year of his contract - has been linked with a move to PSG after his Manchester City move collapsed.


When speaking to reporters after the game, Alves was asked about the possibility of his former Barcelona teammate joining him in the French capital.

His response may be worrying to Arsenal fans.


"It is possible," he said.

"He is being heavily courted by many teams. I will be happy for him wherever he goes. But if it is to come to us, then that’s better.”


Well, it sounds like the PSG players are already aware that the deal could be pulled off.

Rumours have suggested that if Sanchez were to arrive at the Parc des Princes, Edinson Cavani would be sacrificed to accommodate the Chilean.

Given the Uruguayan's ridiculous form since Zlatan Ibrahimovic's departure, that would seem a tad unfair.

Although, if it meant Mbappe moving into his favoured centre forward role with Sanchez and Neymar either side, Unai Emery would perhaps boast the best forward line in world football.
