Dani Alves Announces That He's Leaving PSG This Summer

Dani Alves Announces That He's Leaving PSG This Summer

Former Barcelona right back Dani Alves took to social media on Saturday night to reveal that he was leaving PSG after two years with the Ligue 1 champions.

Alves moved from Juventus on a free transfer in the summer of 2017 and helped PSG to win two Ligue 1 titles, the Coup de Frances, Coup de la Ligue and Trophée des Champions to add to his ridiculous trophy cabinet.

On Saturday night he took to Instagram to announce that he'd be leaving the French champions, saying, "Another cycle in my life ends today, a victorious cycle, one of learning and experiences.

"I would like to thank the PSG family for the opportunity we had together to build a page in the club's history.

"I would like to thank all the staff for their affection, respect and complicity from day one... you make this club a little more special.

"It was two years of resilience and continuous reinventing to fulfil my mission but in life everything has a beginning, a middle and an end and now the time has come to make that final point.

"I apologise if at any point I was not up to it on the pitch and I apologise if at some points I made mistakes, I just tried to give my best.

"Thanks to all my companions for the moments we lived, the laughter together and the boredom that your lazy spirits put me through.

"If you ever remember me, be like the "Good Crazy" of each day, with a beautiful smile on your face, with a pure energy of soul, as a professional worker and committed to the goals, as someone who just wanted to make each day better."

Alves became synonymous with Barcelona during the Pep Guardiola era and won 23 trophies with the Catalan giants.

He left in 2016 to join Juventus, where he won the domestic double, but lasted just one season before he moved on again.

The Brazilian had been expected to join Manchester City at that point, to be reunited with Guardiola, but decided to move to PSG instead.

Just several hours before his announcement the 36 year old was captaining his country to a 5-0 win in the Copa America over Peru, with the full back scoring the fourth goal.

It's not known where he could end up after leaving the Parc des Princes but expect whatever team it is to win some silverware.
