    It's been a long while since he put up a complete season.

    In the 14/15 season he was a beast in the second half which help led us to the treble but he was dodgy during the first half of the season then. he also showed a lot of decline as well during his final season here. at Juve he was average but he only started to show form during the later stages of the CL.

    Juve had a system which helped protected his aging legs but without it he really shows his age.

    deserved thumping for voting neymar as best player in the world in recent ballon d'or outing.

    if anyone, you'd expect him to know better. was all time great, but barca helped him more than he helped barca.

    Real exposed that in the CL final last year.

    Just a mouthpiece these days.
    He could be a nice bench player or good starter in France, but tbh I am not sure what PSG were thinking when they signed him from Juve.

    Weren't PSG heavily interested in him back in 2013? I remember there was some uncertainty with Alves and PSG was one of the rumored teams that wanted him.

    There were rumors Thomas Meunier was considering a move last summer as they signed Alves and we all know he isn't someone who would accept a bench role regardless of his age. Sure Alves was a machine in his prime but the man is 34 going on 35 soon, it's simply not the best move relying on him and potentially losing someone like Meunier.

    Yes, but you see, he is friends with Ney Ney and a brazilian, this is project Ney Ney, expect more of this in the future.

    Dani Alves six months ago put Neymar in the pocket, had been making a wonderful tie by Juve being very decisive.

    Obviously he can not be sideways in teams that play open. It worked very well in Juventus because it played of wing and had a whole defensive system that protected its side. Cuadrado helped him a lot. Offensively he's the best in the world with breaks.

    Many question their going to PSG, but for a player who is going to be 35 years old, it may be the luxury of playing a weaker league to live in a wonderful city. Obviously it would be better for your career to go to City, but he's not a kid anymore. The problem is a 26-year-old player at the top going to hide in France.

    I think he could have had more to offer here and the stability and familiarity would have helped him to slow down more gracefully. Him leaving was always a lose-lose scenario. Looking like it was a bigger loss for him.

    We needed to move on from him, was getting too old. It's probably for the best that he forced our hand really. Wouldn't be surprised if he were still starting for us had he stayed.

    Still a great player for his age. But has become more inconsistent with time.

    Idk why people are saying he forced our hand. We only offered him a new contract when we got a transfer ban, pinnacle of rudensss to a legend.

    Still a decent player to play in league games but at his age is no way at the level needed to be a starter in huge champions league fixtures anymore.

    Had to be subbed of today and apparently he will likely miss the World Cup as well.

    Suffered some Ligament injury in his knee.
