‘Dani Alves will leave PSG’ – Chiellini expecting Juventus repeat
Dani Alves will not be hanging around at Paris Saint-Germain, says Giorgio Chiellini, with a repeat of his Juventus exit saga to be expected.
The Brazilian full-back had spent just one season in Turin, winning the Serie A title and reaching the Champions League final, before departing over the summer.

He moved to France on a two-year contract, having snubbed Manchester City, but doubt has been cast over his ability to see out that agreement.
Chiellini believes that a man who previously spent eight years on the books at Barcelona is now constantly seeking new challenges at 34 years of age.
The Italy international told Mediaset Premium: “That’s what Dani is like.
“I think he will leave Paris Saint-Germain too, because he always needs new challenges. There is a lot of respect here for him, as he left good memories.”
Alves’ ability to settle in the French capital should be aided by the presence of several countrymen.
Neymar completed a record-breaking €222 million move to PSG in the last transfer window, joining fellow Brazilians Thiago Silva, Marquinhos and Lucas Moura at Parc des Princes.
Alves has impressed since making his move, with three goals netted in his 15 appearances to date.
He is also feeling much happier, having admitted to Sky Sports in Italy that he left Juventus after losing his appetite for the game.
Alves said: “I went away from Juventus because I was not enjoying myself. The club must take an example from Napoli.”
