Report: PSG to pay Barcelona defender €9m over three years

PSG have reportedly reached an agreement with Barcelona right-back Dani Alves, which will pay the Brazilian €27 million over three years.

According to Radio MARCA, PSG offered Dani Alves a three-year €27 million deal and the Barcelona defender and his agent and ex-wife, Dinorah Santana, worked out the terms and signed the contract in Paris on 10th March.

The report goes on to state that should Alves go back on the deal and accept an offer from Barcelona or any other club, there will be a €1 million penalty clause and that while he will be paid €9 million over three seasons, he must play a minimum of 20 games in order to receive the full amount.

Barcelona were scheduled to sit down with Alves over the international break to discuss a contract extension, leaving the matter to the last minute when Santana has been publicly requesting a meeting for months.

Due to their inability to act in a timely matter, their meeting with Alves may have now become unnecessary as they were said to only be offering €6 million and unwilling to meet PSG's lucrative salary.

It is reported that Santana remains in Paris to wrap up the final details and continue looking for a flat for the Brazilian defender while Alves focusses on his final three months at the club, which he's hoping to end with a treble.

Meanwhile. Barcelona are now left without arguably one of the best vertical right-backs in the game on a free transfer, with Martin Montoya and Douglas the remaining players for that position as Barcelona wrap up their transfer ban this summer.

It is believed that neither the front office nor Luis Enrique are content with Montoya or Douglas starting with Adriano or Marc Bartra set to move over to the right-back position and battle it out for the starting role.
