Dani Alves chose to join Sao Paolo after leaving Paris Saint-Germain. He claimed he could join Juventus and Barcelona if there was a long-term contract.
Alves was contracted by Sao Paolo until December 2022. He chose the Brazilian club for the sake of appearing in the 2022 World Cup.
The 36-year-old right-back revealed there was an opportunity to return to Juventus or Barcelona. However, the two clubs did not dare to give a long-term contract for Alves.
“I want to play in the 2022 World Cup, and for that I have to play as much as possible,” he told The Players’ Tribune.
“I could have returned to Juve, as well as Barcelona, but I want guarantees. Moving to Sao Paulo is one of the few options left after my contract with PSG has ended,” he continued.
“Some clubs glance at me during the summer, but no one wants to offer me a long-term contract,” Alves stressed. football predictions
