Man City transfer news: Dani Alves reveals why he didn’t sign for Pep Guardiola

“I know that if the people close to me are happy, I am happy, and I can do my job better.

“For me, it was a shame not to work with Guardiola again because he knows I adore him, but at the same time it was a new challenge which is what changed my mind.”

Alves instead left Juventus to join PSG but the right-back has hinted he will never say never if a move to the Premier League was on offer.

“No, no I don’t regret it… and anyway my career is not over yet,” he said.

“English football is a type of football which excites me a lot.”

In the tell-all Sky Sports interview, Alves also revealed how he was close to joining Chelsea before the transfer fell through in 2007.
