The 36-year-old Brazilian joined PSG from Juventus in 2017 and won two Ligue 1 titles with them. However, he fell short in his efforts, alongside the team, in their quest to win the UEFA Champions League.

It can be recalled that PSG suffered a shock elimination by Manchester United in the last 16 of last season’s UCL competition. Dani Alves played at least 73 games for the Ligue 1 giants across 2 seasons and scored 8 goals for the club.

The veteran defender is currently the Brazil captain in the ongoing Copa America being hosted on home soil where he already has a goal to his name in their 5 nil rout of Peru in the last group stage game.
