Dani Alves moving closer to Paris Saint-Germain switch

Dani Alves has yet to been offered a new contract from Barcelona and is out of contract in the summer, with a number of top profile clubs linked with the defender.

It looks extremely likely that Alves’ time in Spain is almost up as Barcelona are currently unsure over the decision in whether to offer the 31-year-old a new contract, which has led to a number of clubs interested in the Brazilian international.


PSG are looking like favourites to snap him up on a free transfer with it believing that they have offered him the best deal. The French champions will be looking complete an all-Brazilian back four and Alves would welcome that, with Maxwell, Thiago Silva and David Luiz already at the club.

It would be a very bad mistake if Barcelona were to not renew the contract of the experienced Alves, he is still known as one of the best right backs in the world if not the best and this is being shown by the number of Europe’s top sides keeping their eyes on the defender.

Contract renewal

Also with their current transfer ban not allowing them to sign any players within 2015 surely they would want to keep their best players at the club and not get rid of them as they cannot buy any replacements.

If Alves was to leave then it would likely that Martin Montoya would be his replacement at right back. Montoya is a good player, but in comparison to Alves he is not very good and would be their weak link within the squad if he replaced the Brazilian.

The Brazil star's agent Deborah Santana said: "We are listening to offers. Many clubs are interested. Until now Barcelona have not spoken with us about a new deal."
