Dani Alves Set To Reject New One Year Deal At PSG

Dani Alves Set To Reject New One Year Deal At PSG

Dani Alves could be about to move to the Premier League with the PSG full back turning down an offer from his current club to extend his stay in the French capital for another year.

This season was the ninth time that Dani Alves has lifted a league title and the Brazilian full back, who controvernes the rules of false advertising as a 'defender, has a ridiculous amount of other trophies in his cabinet too.

As a player whose game revolves around bombing up and down the pitch you'd have thought that his career might be coming to a close at the age of 36.

However it seems that the former Barcelona 'defender' has his eyes set very much on the future and is looking for one last hurrah.

According to Brazilian outlet UOL, Alves has been offered a new one year deal at PSG, with his contract expiring in the summer, but the full back has turned it down.

The report says that he would like a two year deal instead, and would like to stay with the Ligue 1 champions, but he also has his sights set on a potential move to the Premier League.

Alves has been previously wanted in England and when he left Juventus it seemed he was going to be reuniting with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

In the end he decided against joining up with Pep and instead moved to France, where he has won five trophies in just two seasons.

Manchester United and Chelsea have also previously shown interest in Alves, who said in November last year that he'd like to play in England, telling the Telegraph, "The idea that I might finish my career without going to the Premier League, it is not possible."

The club are likely to offer him the two year deal he desires because Belgian right back Thomas Meunier is expected to leave in the summer, with his contract expiring next summer.

Speaking about the situation last week Alves said, "At the moment, I have not made a decision on my future. The only tip I can give is that I have a lot of options. It is not something that I like to ponder.

"I like to fulfil my mission. I have a contract with PSG until the end of June [this year] and until then I will give 200% of myself to the club.

"If I stay, I will continue doing my best. If I do otherwise, I will keep on doing my best somewhere else. But I will still be grateful for the opportunities I had."

Will Alves move to England?
