This opportunity coincided with Alves' decision to leave Juventus.
MANCHESTER — Former Barcelona defender Dani Alves admits very sorry for refusing the proposal to join the English Premier League giants, Manchester City. That was admitted by Alves when he got an offer to close to the Etihad Stadium on 2017 ago.
“I regret not having decided to move closer to Manchester City on 2017 to be able to work with Guardiola again,” said Alves explaining to Sports TV quoted Tribal Football, Wednesday (26/5).
At that time City was looking for a right winger after Pablo Zabaleta left. The club nicknamed the Eastland also targets Alves as a successor considering that he has a close relationship with coach Guardiola.
This opportunity coincided with Alves' decision to leave Juventus. However, unfortunately City's offer was rejected by the player because he was more interested in joining Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). City also decided to tie the Tottenham Hotspur defender, Kyle Walker.
“I regret it, but not because I joined PSG but because I could no longer work under Guardiola,” connect old players 38 year.
Alves, players with a collection of titles in abundance, won six trophies in two exciting seasons with PSG.
But his golden era occurred when he was in the Barcelona uniform. At that time Alves managed to grasp the total 23 trophy with six Spanish La Liga, Copa del Rey tie, and three Champions League titles.
Currently Alves has returned to strengthen his home club Sao Paulo. The Brazilian player is under contract for three seasons up to 2022.
