The English giants have already strengthened their left-back zone by adding Spanish star Angelino to their defensive ranks and now Pep Guardiola wants to add reinforcements to his right back position. The Spanish boss is now chasing the elusive Champions League title after creating some terrific history with Manchester City.
The 48-year-old Spaniard Guardiola won back to back Premier League titles with Manchester City as they stormed the English top division amassing a staggering 100 points and 98 points respectively in each term. This season, Manchester City became the first club in the history to complete the domestic treble of the Premier League, FA Cup, and League Cup.
However, in order to maintain that high standard of football, Manchester City may have to purchase a few players in the summer transfer window to keep up the intensity and fight for titles. The blue half of Manchester is looking at players that could actually benefit them over a long term or short term and have lined up Dani Alves as an option for the summer.
The 36-year-old Alves decided to leave the Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain after two seasons in the French capital winning almost every single domestic competition with the Parisians. Alves is now a free agent but still proven that he has a lot to offer on the pitch after captaining his Brazilian national team to the Copa America title this summer.
Alves had the chance to reunite with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City back in 2017 but decided to join Unai Emery at PSG instead. The pair had spent quite a bit of time working together during their stint at Catalonian club Barcelona and are looking to try and negotiate something for the upcoming season in order to do so in the future.
Guardiola still wants to make a proper right back signing to ensure that the long term position is still occupied and kept fulfilled. Juventus right back Joao Cancelo is another option as the 25-year-old Portuguese defender has been closely linked with a move to the City of Manchester Stadium over the last few weeks.
I don’t really see Alves joining Manchester City because he is already past his prime and despite showing his ability on the pitch, a club like City needs players to deliver on a consistent basis, which I doubt the 36-year-old can actually achieve.
