Dani Alves is on the cusp of securing a transfer to Manchester City.

But the former Juventus and Barcelona right-back has managed to get in some last-minute sunshine with his new wife, Spanish model Joana Sanz, before joining the Etihad club.




The two can be seen lounging and cozying up with one another on the bow of a boat on a tranquil sea in a photograph uploaded to Instagram.

The defender captioned up the image, ‘Togedinhos somos mas fuertes’, which translates as ‘together we are stronger’.

Alves and Sanz were married in a romantic ceremony on Spanish island Ibiza last week, with the groom matching the bride’s outfit by rocking up in a white suit.

The 34-year-old is a key target for City, who are managed by his ex-Barca boss Pep Guardiola and need new full-backs.

Paris Saint-Germain made a shock offer for Alves in an attempt to snatch him from under City’s noses at the 11th hour.




Guardiola’s side are still confident that they can bring in the Brazil international after he terminated his Juventus contract in order to make the move.

A delay to Alves’s medical, held up by both his own wedding and the marriage of former team-mate Lionel Messi, gave PSG a chance of snatching him away.

City released both Pablo Zabaleta and Gael Clichy this summer and are also keen on Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker.
