Alves netted for Brazil on Saturday as they swept Peru aside at the Copa America, winning 5-0 to maintain their unbeaten start at the tournament.
The 36-year-old took to Instagram after the win to announce that he will be leaving PSG after two years at the Ligue 1 outfit.
Alves is bound to have a number of big-money offers in the coming months.
But should any English launch a bid for the Brazilian this summer? Starsport takes a look at whether he would be a good fit at any of the top Premier League sides.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United are in need of a wealth of players this summer as they look to bring the glory days back to Manchester.
The Red Devils will no doubt be looking to strengthen their defence, notably at centre-back.
But after Antonio Valencia’s departure, Solskjaer is said to also want a new right-back.
Matteo Darmian’s days are numbered at Old Trafford, while Diogo Dalot may still need time to adapt in the first-team.
United are expected to land Crystal Palace youngster Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer for a fee of around £55m.
Alves would demand significantly higher wages than the 21-year-old – but his arrival would offer much-needed experience and would allow Wan-Bissaka another year of development at Selhurst Park.
Arsenal are another side who will look to shore up their defence before the August 8 deadline.
And the more free transfers Unai Emery can land this summer, the better.
The Gunners have a small budget for a team consistently finishing in the top six so may be unwilling to match Alves’ hefty demands.
A move for Alves’ PSG team-mate Thomas Meunier probably makes more sense this summer.
The Belgian has already been linked with Arsenal and United in recent months.
Liverpool arguably have the best defence in world football at present.
So adding Alves to that would surely see Jurgen Klopp’s men go close in the Premier League and Europe again next season.
However, current first choice full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has been playing out of his skin in recent months and looks set to make that position his own for years to come.
The 20-year-old already looks set to oust Kyle Walker as England’s No 1 right-back.
Liverpool deciding to add Alves to their ranks too would seem greedy from Klopp, but there are still doubts over Nathaniel Clyne’s future.
The England international spent last season on loan at Bournemouth and reports suggest his agent could be looking for a way out this summer.
Suddenly, a battle over the right-back position between Alexander-Arnold’s youth and Alves’ experience would be a fascinating scenario for Klopp.
Alves to Manchester City is a real possibility this summer.
Pep Guardiola turned Barcelona into one of the best sides to have ever played the game during his stint at the club – and the Brazilian was a key figure in that success.
Alves and the City boss still enjoy a good relationship.
Last year, the free agent claimed being coached by Guardiola was ‘better than sex’.
Walker remains the club’s first choice at right-back but with Danilo set to leave this summer, Alves would be a fine backup.
City have also been chasing Juventus star Joao Cancelo in recent weeks but a deal is yet to materialise.
Another move that makes sense is Alves to Tottenham.
The north London outfit have grown significantly under Mauricio Pochettino, while not spending significant amounts of money.
Spurs can now attract big players thanks to their success on and off the field, especially with their new, plush stadium.
To add, Kieran Trippier has been out of sorts since the World Cup and Serge Aurier looks set to leave this summer.
Persuading Alves to join Pochettino’s project would be a huge statement of intent now Tottenham are ready to start strengthening their playing squad once more.
