Dani Alves denies convincing Neymar to join Paris Saint-Germain

Dani Alves denies convincing Neymar to join Paris Saint-Germain”

PSG have been bolstered in defence by the arrival of Dani Alves from Juventus.

Despite the 34-year-old spending the vast majority of his career playing at right-back, he has popped up with numerous key goals and assists in his time.

The 34-year old then set up Adrien Rabiot to head home the victor, to ensure PSG win the trophy the 7th time.

Another 180 million euros could travel into Monaco's coffers if they sell Kylian Mbappé.

It will come as the boost for PSG's morale ahead of the new Ligue 1 season which will see them host Amiens in their first game on August 5. 60 seconds later a wicked volley from Dani Alves saw Danijel Subasic parried away.

The lively nature of the match continued and Jemerson made a superb block to deny Cavani sweeping in Kurzawa's centre at the end of a lightning PSG break.

The team from the capital picked up the France's Champions' Trophy played in Tangiers despite falling behind to a Djibril Sidibe goal on the hour.

Radamel Falcao had the opportunity to double the lead when he met Sidibe's teasing right-wing cross with a powerful header that cleared the crossbar.

It took less than 20 minutes for the match to be turned on its head all inspired by Alves.

Monaco almost pulled level on 80 minutes, but PSG goalkeeper Areola produced a fine save to keep out Guido Carrillo's header.

Barca defender Gerard Pique, who last week posted a picture of himself with Neymar on Instagram with the caption "se queda", meaning "he stays" has admitted he is unsure whether the forward will remain at Nou Camp heading into the 2017-18 season, claiming his online post was a "gut thing".
