According to multiple reports in France, Paris Saint-Germain are trying to hijack Manchester City's deal with Dani Alves and are looking to sign the Brazilian full-back to replace the departing Serge Aurier. PSG have the money to compete with City, Paris is a great city, and Dani is yet to sign his contract with the Sky Blues.

So should we be worried? The simple answer is: NOPE. Dani Alves just got married in Spain over the weekend and will travel to Manchester next week for medicals and contract signing, according to reports. Alves met with Pep Guardiola in Barcelona on Friday, according to Goal's Sam Lee, and in that meeting he made the final decision to join City.

Despite the efforts from PSG, Alves' agents have made it clear that Dani will join City and will realize his dream to play in the Premier League while reuniting with his former manager. The only reason he terminated his Juventus contract was to join City on a free transfer, and he never considered any other clubs.

So don't worry about it. We're getting a right-back this summer. The best in the world, actually.
