Dani Alves

Paris Saint Germain right full-back Dani Alves has revealed how he almost got convinced to sign for Chelsea before joining Spanish giants Barcelona some years back.

The Brazilian defender says he ended up snubbing a move to the Stamford Bridge that was then managed by current Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

Alves expressed delight in his past decision as he hinted that he could not have had it this good with his career as he has excelled in Spain and currently having a good life in France.

The Brazillian explained that he had already agreed a deal from Sevilla to the Stamford Bridge in 2007 to work with the Portuguese boss and not for the club but eventually he found himself with the Catalans where he met Pep Guardiola.

It is worthy to note that the PSG player won a total of 14 major trophies at the Camp Nou, making him one of the most successful players in the Brazil team.

However, Alves left Barcelona to join Juventus in 2016 where he also won the Serie A title and Coppa Italia in his first year. It was not long enough that the call came for the Brazilian right full back to move to France where he currently plays.
