Dani Alves confirms PSG departure

Dani Alves

Sao Paulo, June 23: Brazil full-back Dani Alves has announced his Paris Saint-Germain departure after two years with the Ligue 1 champions.

The 36-year-old former Barcelona defender refused to commit to a new deal with PSG and will move on as a free agent.

Alves has been linked with a move to the Premier League and last month stated that he has "a lot of options".

The veteran revealed he will be leaving the French capital after scoring in Brazil's 5-0 Copa America thumping of Peru on Saturday.

Hoje fecho mais um ciclo na minha vida, um ciclo de vitória, de aprendizados e de experiências. Gostaria de agradecer a família PSG pela oportunidade de juntos construir uma página na história desse clube. Gostaria de agradecer a todos e sobre tudo ao staff pelo carinho, pelo respeito, pela cumplicidade demostrada desde o primeiro dia... vocês fazem esse clube um pouco mais especial. Foram dois anos de resiliência e reinventares contínuos para cumprir com a minha missão, porém na vida tudo tem um começo, um meio, um final e hoje chegou o momento de colocar esse ponto final aqui. Peço-lhes desculpas se em algum momento não estive a altura, peço-lhes desculpas se em algum momento cometir alguma falha, apenas tentavam dá o meu melhor. Obrigado a todos os companheiros pelos momentos vividos, pelas risadas juntos, pelos enfados também que vossos espíritos preguiçosos me fizeram passar.Se vocês um dia me recordarem, que seja como o GOOD CRAZY de cada dia, com um belo sorriso no rosto, com uma energia pura de alma, como um profissional trabalhador e compromissado com os objetivos.... como alguém que apenas quis que vocês fossem melhores a cada dia e que tentou fazê-los entender o verdadeiro significado da palavra equipe. “Um grande abraço a todos e espero que não sintam muita falta das minhas loucuras” Com muito carinho GoodCrazy!! #GoodCrazyMood

Alves posted on Instagram: "Today I close another cycle in my life, a cycle of victory, learning and experiences.

"I would like to thank the PSG family for the opportunity to together build a page in the history of this club.

"I would like to thank all the staff for their affection, respect and complicity from day one ... you make this club a little more special.

"It was two years of resilience and continuous reinventing to fulfil my mission, but in life everything has a beginning, a middle and an end and now the time has come to put that final point here.

"I apologise if at any point I was not up to the pitch, I apologise if at some point I made a mistake, I just tried to give my best."
