However, the 32-year-old has indicated that he will not be returning to Barcelona and even admitted that he didn’t feel fully respected by his team.
The defender’s contract with Barcelona is set to expire at the end of June, and he has expressed interest in joining AC Milan.
Manchester United has also expressed interest in signing the veteran defender, as they are looking to shore up their defense.
Alves appears to be all but headed to AC Milan though, judging by his most recent comments.
“It would be a pleasure to join Milan. There is a proposal from Italy and I will evaluate all the alternatives before deciding,” Alves said to ESPN FC.
Alves would be joining a squad that recently hired a new head coach in Sinisa Mihajlovic, who will replace Filippo Inzaghi after the team experienced a disappointing season.
They finished in 10th place in the Serie A standings, which will be a severe downgrade from playing for a squad who won the Treble.
