Paris: Brazil worldwide Dani Alves admitted the prospect of "making history" by winning the Champions League with Paris Saint-Germain factored into his decision to join the French heavyweights.

The 34-year-old defender had been heavily linked with a move to Manchester City, where he would have linked up with his former coach at Barca, Pep Guardiola.

Alves passed a medical in the French capital before he was presented at a press conference in Paris, holding aloft his new shirt with the number 32 on its back. He spent a season at Juventus, helping the team reach the Champions League final, after eight years at Barcelona.

"The club has grown amazingly and I'm delighted to be here".

PSG announced the signing of Alves on Wednesday on a two-year deal. "We're going to share in some great times, I'm certain of that", the former Sevilla player concluded.
