The Premier League has been one of the most, if not the most competitive league around Europe given the quality of the teams and how hard-fought the matches are. This summer we’re set to see three of the most important clubs in the Premier taking the competition to other grounds and fight for one of the best right-backs in the world.
Dani Alves left Paris Saint-Germain at the end of last season and now is on the search for a new team and the Premier League looks like a very good destination for him. Alves, recently crowned as Copa America champion with the Brazil national side, would have to choose one of Arsenal, Manchester City, and Tottenham to be his new team.
Alves is 36, but he has proven over and over that he doesn’t age the same way as other players and is still a quality player for whichever his new team is. Unlike other stars, Alves attempts to remain playing in the elite of football instead of going to other football leagues where players go to spend the last years of their careers without many emotions.
Dani plans to keep playing at the highest level in order to remain relevant when the 2022 Qatar World Cup takes place.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the aforementioned Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester City are the three teams who will try to lure the former Barcelona and Juventus star, who can add a lot of quality and title-winning experience to any of these teams.
The report says that Arsenal’s boss Unai Emery is trying to convince the Gunners’ hierarchy to make a run at Alves, who is a proven player and won’t demand the North Londoners to make huge spending.
Manchester City, on the other hand, already tried to sign Alves back in 2017, where he left Juventus to go play in Paris. Now, with Danilo’s future up in the air, Pep Guardiola would be thinking of a reunion with Alves as a backup for Kyle Walker.
Tottenham, at last, have also shown their interest in signing Alves given the fact that Kieran Trippier is on his way out of the club after a very disappointing season. Seeing the moves the Spurs are making this summer, purchasing Dani Alves will surely help them to be even more dangerous than they already are.
At age 36, it’s crazy to see how many good teams are trying to get Alves’ signature this summer. Wherever he decides to go, that club will secure a hell of a player.
