Alves eyes piece of Paris his­tory

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

Brazil in­ter­na­tional Dani Alves said on Wed­nes­day the prospect of “mak­ing his­tory” by win­ning the Cham­pi­ons League with Paris Saint-Ger­main fac­tored into his de­ci­sion to join the French heavy­weight.

Alves was un­veiled as the club’s sec­ond sign­ing of the sum­mer after ink­ing a twoyear deal on a free trans­fer fol­low­ing his exit from Ju­ven­tus last month.

The move is a blow to Manch­ester City boss Pep Guardi­ola, who wanted to bring 34year-old Alves to the Premier League. Guardi­ola man­aged him at Barcelona, where the right­back won three Cham­pi­ons Leagues and six Span­ish league ti­tles.
