Paris Saint-Germain defender opens up about interest from Liverpool
Posted: 5 November 2017 Time: 13:30
Paris Saint-Germain defender Dani Alves has revealed he was on the verge of joining Liverpool prior to eventually moving to Barcelona.
The Brazilian is one of the world’s most decorated footballers, having won three Champions League titles, six La Liga crowns and one Serie A trophy during spells with Barcelona and Juventus.
However, the 34-year-old has said he had virtually agreed a move to Anfield in 2006 while still at Sevilla, only for the deal to break down.
“I pretty much had an agreement with Liverpool," he told FourFourTwo.
"But for whatever reason it didn’t happen at the last moment and I really don’t know why, as I wasn’t the one conducting the negotiations.
"I had other people representing me back then.
“Something similar happened later in my career with Chelsea and Real Madrid.
"Of course, it all worked out happily for the Cules [Barcelona supporters] in the end, and also for me as I was able to write an amazing story at the Camp Nou instead.”
