Dani Alves has laughed at reports he is set to sign a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain.
ESPN’s American-Spanish outlet claimed the 35-year-old was ready to extend his time in the French capital despite recent talk that Alves was one of several players whose contract talks were on hold.
L’Equipe claimed that Paris Saint-Germain had decided to halt new contract proposals for Alves, Gianluigi Buffon and Thiago Silva after the Champions League defeat to Manchester United.
Alves though quashed talk of a new deal with a response on twitter that included five thinking emojis, a Pinocchio emoji, and a laughing emoji.
The Brazilian full-back Alves is out of contract in June and his impending summer availability could have plenty of Premier League clubs interested.
Alves left Serie A champions Juventus after just one season in Turin in 2017 and, despite being linked heavily with a move to Man City, but he instead opted to sign a two-year deal with PSG.

“There was not only interest from Manchester City but from other English clubs,” he said at his unveiling by PSG in 2017.
“I have often said the Premier League intrigues me a lot and there is a very interesting project there, too. I did speak with City officials.”
Alves, who only came back from his torn ACL in November, has been linked with Chelsea and Man Utd in the past and they may well be looking at the veteran again this summer.
