Alves ‘invites’ Sanchez to PSG

PSG right-back Dani Alves has endorsed a potential move for Alexis Sanchez, insisting that he would be happy with the outcome if the Chilean leaves Arsenal for the Ligue 1 giants.

The 28-year-old was denied a deadline-day switch to Manchester City after Arsenal failed to land Thomas Lemar, although Unai Emery's PSG were also in the running for the talented forward. Indeed, Goal reported back in July that Alexis met with PSG chiefs  and now Alves has admitted he would welcome his arrival, should the Parisiens make another move in future transfer windows.

-It's a possibility, but there are several teams that want him. I want him to be happy wherever he goes, but if that's with us, it's better, he said when asked about the Chilean.

Alves faced Alexis in Brazil's 3-0 World Cup qualifying win over Chile - a result that meant the Chileans were out of contention to qualify for the tournament in Russia next year.

An injury-hit start to the season has limited Alexis's game time thus far, with the forward having scored one goal in seven games for the north Londoners in 2017-18.
