PSG call conference after leaving Pep ‘fuming’ over Alves

Paris St Germain will hold a press conference on Wednesday afternoon amid speculation they are set to sign Brazilian right-back Dani Alves.

The 34-year-old, who is available after parting company with Juventus last month, has been linked with both PSG and Manchester City.

The French capital club wrote on their official Twitter account: “The club will hold a press conference this afternoon at 4pm at the Parc des Princes.”

PSG then posted a picture of Alves’ Brazil team-mate Marquinhos under the words: “10:26. Another 5 hours and 34 minutes to wait.”

Pep Guardiola has reportedly been left ‘fuming’ over losing out on a main transfer target.

It is alleged that PSG offered Alves wages of around £230,000 a week – double that of City’s offer.

City had expected to complete a deal to sign the Brazilian, and held off on negotiations over the weekend due to Alves’ wedding.

A verbal agreement had been struck, but Alves has now seemingly reneged on that to move to France instead.
