2 reasons why Dani Alves to Man City is a waste of time all round

The Guardian has revealed how Dani Alves is out of contract at PSG and Man City have shown an interest.

Despite the fact he’s now 36, it looks like he still wants one more shot at big-time football. The right-back had achieved a lot under Pep Guardiola when they were together at Barcelona.

Even though Alves will be eager to have a season in the Premier League, however, there may be a few issues to why a move to Man City may not happen.

Putting the rumours aside that Tottenham has reportedly held talks with the defender. The Football Manc Cave have picked out two things that will stop the Brazilian from reuniting with Pep Guardiola…

No Room

He’s a right back and Man City already have a reserve in Danilo to fill in that position if needed, so there’s no potential room for Alves. If the 36-year-old does want to move to the Premier League, he will not want to spend his time warming the Man City bench.

Reaching the twilight years of his career, he will want to make the most of the time he has left. This is why he may benefit from weighing up his options and browsing other clubs in the top flight of English football.

Rejected

In 2017, Alves turned down Manchester City’s advances to sign him.

So what’s changed now? Apart from the fact he’s out of contract and could potentially be looking at clubs in the Premier League, I don’t see why he would go back on the decision now. Especially when he’s not guaranteed playing time. This news is only fresh this week so I’m guessing we’ll be hearing more in the coming days regarding the Brazilian’s future.
