Alves stayed in Barcelona for four more seasons, before claiming the Serie A trophy with Juventus and the Ligue 1 crown with his current club PSG a year later.

He has won 38 trophies in his illustrious 17-year career, but has made it known before he does not want to hang up his boots without tasting Premier League football.

According to the Sun, Alves admitted that he rejected City's approach ahead of his PSG switch in 2017.

He told the Telegraph last year: "Turning him down was painful. In football terms he was one of the most amazing people I have known, completely obsessed with his work, but how he treated people was special, especially me."
