Pharco FC secured promotion to the top flight in Egypt for the first time in their history after topping their group last week.

Club chairman Shreen Helmy already has his eyes on a big-name target, having revealed he is in the process of trying to persuade Alves to make the switch from Sao Paulo to Egypt.

"I am working on bringing Dani Alves from Sao Paulo because we can benefit from his experience," Helmy told ElHadath AlYoum, as per KingFut.

"I have met Alves and he told me he wanted to play with Sao Paulo since he was eight years old, and I think I can bring him to the Egyptian Premier League."

Helmy also claimed he has been in conversation with current free agent Lionel Messi, although this was not in the aim of securing a transfer.

"We negotiated with Messi," he added.

"Not to join our club but to strengthen relations with the player after his contribution to the treatment of Hepatitis C."
