Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini has suggested that Dani Alves could pursue a move away from Paris Saint-Germain in the future. The Brazil international left the Bianconeri after just one season to join Les Parisiens earlier in the summer, but Chiellini fancies a similar repeat at the French capital.
Speaking to Premium Sport, Bonucci spoke fondly about his time with Alves, but stressed that it won’t be long before he pushes for a fresh challenge in his illustrious career, he said: “That’s what Dani is like. I think he will leave Paris Saint-Germain too, because he always needs new challenges. There is a lot of respect here for him, as he left good memories.”
Alves did not hit the heights of Barcelona during his time at Juventus with his performances in the Serie A not to the mark. The Brazil international, however, starred during Juventus’ run to the Champions League final where they lost out to Real Madrid by an embarrassing 4-1 scoreline in Cardiff.
Now at Parc des Princes, Alves has established himself as the first-choice on the right side of the backline, and there is still speculation over tension around the club as he and compatriot Neymar are said to have shown disrespect to some of their teammates.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola had been desperate for a reunion with Alves during the summer, and the 34-year-old could yet pursue a switch to the Premier League, having admitted that he would still like to work under the Catalan tactician.
Alves won three Champions League titles during his time at Camp Nou, and he will have his sights on lifting the accolade with Les Parisiens this term, a although it remains a stiff task. The Capital outfit host Real Madrid in the round of 16 of the elite competition, and they will expect a difficult challenge irrespective of Los Blancos’ struggles in their domestic division.
