Dani Alves Reveals What He Told Neymar

Former FC Barcelona star Dani Alves has revealed what he told Neymar amid rumours his friend could complete a world record move to Paris Saint-Germain.

The 34-year-old completed a move to the French giants earlier in this window, and helped PSG claim their first trophy this season after they beat Ligue 1 champions Monaco in the French Super Cup.

Alves has now revealed that he speaks to Neymar every day, and has urged him to be "brave".

"I speak with him every day, but not always about football," he said after scoring in PSG's 2-1 win over Monaco on Saturday, as quoted by Marca.

"I try to keep him calm because in these times, when you listen to people from all over, you can go crazy.

"You have to be selfish because the clubs don't think of you once you don't produce results, as I am an example of.

"I told him one thing, which is to be brave, as this world is for the brave.

"Decisions are for the brave and I am the bravest, deciding to leave Barcelona and Juventus.

"He must now make a decision to keep progressing.

"I just want my friend to be happy wherever he is, although if that is here, then that's obviously better."

However, Alves also insisted he has nothing to do with Neymar's decision on a transfer, saying his friend will decide his own future.

"I hope it happens, but I don't have anything to do with his decision," he added.

"It is an important decision for him and these are the types of decisions that men must make.

"He is one of my best friends and I always want my friends by my side, but I can't interfere in his decision."

Alves is one of four Brazilians already in PSG's squad – the others being Marquinhos, Thiago Silva and Lucas Moura – while Thiago Motta was born in Brazil but represents Italy.

Barca is not Neymar whether he go or not but Barca will remain Barcelona. If he want to move out he must move immediate coz he think he's bigger than Barca bcz of PSG offer.
