Barcelona’s Dani Alves rules out Paris Saint-Germain move

Barcelona full-back Dani Alves has dismissed a potential move to Paris Saint-Germain but admitted he is unsettled at the Nou Camp.

Alves, who has started 29 games in La Liga this year, criticised the Barcelona board in a press conference where he claimed he was unhappy about being made a “scapegoat.”

The outburst has made the 32-year-old Brazilian a target for clubs across Europe but when asked about a future with PSG, the right-back replied with the answer “no”.

Alves has been a fans’ favourite at Barcelona since 2008 but it looks like Manchester United will now make a move for him following his comments.

Speaking about his future, Alves said: “I am with the team 200% but with the board, about 10% – as it is, I have one foot, half a body and almost my head out of the club.

“Six months ago, they didn’t want to renew my contract, then FIFA hit them with a transfer ban, and now they do want me to renew. But not at any price. I value myself more than that.”

Perhaps Man United would benefit from the signing of the younger Gregory Van Der Wiel in the long run. The 27-year-old has made 71 appearances at PSG since 2012 and may be a more viable option for a club looking to build for long-term success.

Out of respect for the club, Alves has told the media he will only make a decision on his Barcelona future after the Champions League final on June 6th. His current contract expires on June 30th.
