REVEALED! How Neymar Helped PSG to Persuade Dani Alves to Join Them
It looked like Neymar already knew he was joining PSG after reports emerged now that the Brazilian played a major role in Dani Alves’ decision to shun Man City to join the French giants.
Neymar who recently completed a controversial world record move to PSG from Barcelona already admitted in an interview that the decision to leave Barcelona was not an easy one but he was moved by the big project of the French club.
Dani Alves disclosed Saturday that Neymar said the Brazil defender should move to the French capital last month – and not to Manchester City – after being released by Juventus.
Neymar also let former Barcelona teammate Alves in on the secret that he was thinking about making the record-breaking EUR222 million ($332m) transfer from the Camp Nou.
“I talked to him about the possibility,” Alves said. “He recommended me to come here. He suggested that I come to the club. I said I wanted to leave Juventus, and he was thinking of coming here.”
