PSG’s pursuit of Barcelona full-back Dani Alves is over after Les Parisiens refused to sanction the sale of Marquinhos the other way.
The clubs had been in protracted negotiations for some time, but Barcelona have been told to look elsewhere for a central defender (Mathieu; Laporte).
Dani Alves himself has admitted that he wants to remain at Barca for next season:
“I want to honour the contract that I signed. I am very happy at Barca.”
