Dani Alves Says Guardiola Didn't Understand His Reasons For Snubbing Man City

Dani Alves says he has spoken with Pep Guardiola about his decision to join Paris Saint-Germain but does not know if the Manchester City coach understands his reasons yet.
Alves, 34, joined PSG on a two-year contract on Wednesday despite having been widely expected to reunite with his former Barcelona boss Guardiola at City.

According to reports in Europe, PSG doubled the salary that was on offer to the Brazil international from City and Guardiola was "furious" about the U-turn.
"Yes, we have spoken," Alves told L'Equipe.

"Well, actually, it was me who did most of the talking. I explained the reasons behind my decision to him.

"After everything we have done together, we have a very cordial relationship, respectful. It is this respect that may mean these things can be understood. Right now, I do not know if he understands my choice.

"I had other options -- here but also in England. Ultimately, it was me who took the decision."
