Barcelona star Dani Alves has agreed terms to join Paris Saint-German at the end of the season, reports in Spain have claimed, with Liverpool and Manchester United - who were also said to be interested in securing his services - missing out on the defender.
The Brazil international is out of contract at the Camp Nou this summer and is a free agent. And with the Catalans yet to offer him a renewal deal, he has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs.
Earlier in March, his agent Dinorah Santana revealed the defender was close to agreeing terms with a team other than Barcelona.
"We're close to signing with another club, the talks are advanced," she said. "Barcelona? Dani is always available but he won't wait much longer. They're making Dani look like the baddie in this movie."
And after Alves revealed earlier in the season he was likely to have an experience in the Premier League, recent reports in Spain claimed United and Liverpool were his most probable destinations.
United manager Louis van Gaal is desperately looking for a right-back to replace out of favour Rafael, while Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers may also need to bolster the position after Glen Jonhson revealed he is in talks to leave Anfield in the summer, with his contract running out at the end of the season.
But according to Radio Marca, the Premier League giants will have to look elsewhere as Alves has committed his future to PSG. The reports claimed the 31-year-old full-back was recently in Paris, where he signed a three-year contract worth €9m a year (£6.3m, $9.5m).
Should the news be true, it would be yet another transfer blow for Van Gaal after earlier in March, reports in Spain claimed the other potential replacement for Rafael, Porto star Danilo, had agreed to move to Real Madrid.
