Alves Reveals Big Man City Regret

Former FC Barcelona star Dani Alves has revealed that he regrets not reuniting with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City four years ago.

It was Guardiola who signed the Brazilian for the Catalan giants, where the right-back enjoyed great success as he won 23 trophies before leaving the club in 2016.

After spending only one season with Serie A giants Juventus, Alves was linked with a switch to Premier League side City but made a decision he would come to rue when he opted to join Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer instead.

"I regret not going to Manchester City (in 2017) to work with Guardiola again," Alves told SporTV.

"When you are with people like him (Guardiola), who always finds a way out, it adds a lot to you. My regret was not having gone to work with him again.

"But not for PSG, because the story that I lived at PSG was incredible."

Alves went on to spend two seasons in the French capital and won six trophies, while the Citizens ended up signing Kyle Walker and Danilo for their right-back slot in 2017.
