Neymar had signed a record breaking deal with PSG with a fee of €222 million and Alves who was looking for a way to move out of Juventus, says he joined PSG because Neymar told him he would join too.
Dani Alves told reporters:
“It was he who advised me to come here because he was himself ready to come.
“Having my friends close to me is always a pleasure, a great honour. I’m sure we’ll try to help him be happy here.
“I have nothing to do with it. Neymar is big now. He is no longer the young boy who has arrived in Barcelona.
“At that time, yes, I helped Neymar and advised him to come to Barcelona. But not here in Paris. I have done practically nothing.”
