Dani Alves has confirmed his exit from Paris Saint-Germain and the Premier League could well be the next stop in his title-laden career.
The Brazilian is leaving PSG after two years at the club and has not confirmed his next destination just yet, but he has made no secret of his desire to play in England.
The 36-year-old told the Telegraph: ‘The idea that I might finish my career without going to the Premier League, it is not possible.’
Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea have all made offers for the right-back in the past and both Manchester clubs could attempt to sign him again this summer.
Pep Guardiola came close to signing Alves two years ago, but he decided to move to Paris instead.
City may be tempted to take another shot at signing him, while the Red Devils could turn to the veteran if they miss out on Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Alves has won La Liga with Barcelona, Serie A with Juventus and Ligue 1 with PSG, so would love to add the Premier League to his collection.
The Premier League champions would give him a great chance of doing just that, and they may be in the market for a new full-back with Danilo expected to depart the club this summer.
Alves is with the Brazil national team in the Copa America, scoring in their 5-0 win over Peru on Saturday, after which he announced his departure from PSG.
‘Today I close another cycle in my life, a cycle of victory, learning and experiences,’ wrote Alves.
‘I would like to thank the PSG family for the opportunity to together build a page in the history of this club. I would like to thank all the staff for their affection, respect and complicity from day one… you make this club a little more special.
‘It was two years of resilience and continuous reinventing to fulfil my mission, but in life, everything has a beginning, a middle and an end and now the time has come to put that final point here.
‘I apologise if at any point I was not up to the pitch, I apologise if at some point I made a mistake, just tried to give my best.
‘Thanks to all the companions for the moments lived, the laughter together, the boredom that your lazy spirits have put me through.
‘If you ever remember me, be like the GOOD CRAZY of each day, with a beautiful smile on your face, with a pure energy of soul, as a professional worker and committed to the goals…. as someone who just wanted to you were better each day and you tried to make them understand the true meaning of the word team.
‘A big hug to all and hope you do not miss my crazy things. With great affection GoodCrazy!!’
