Alves was widely expected to sign for the two-time Premier League champions to play under his former manager Guardiola, but it is believed that PSG hijacked the deal at the last minute.

After being officially unveiled to the media, the full-back told reporters: "If Pep Guardiola and Manchester City feel hurt, I am sorry. I have come here to be a champion.

"I've had the pleasure of winning the Champions League three times and I want to bring my experience here."

34-year-old Alves spent eight years at Barcelona, winning 23 trophies, before leaving the Catalonia club in 2016 for Serie A champion Juventus.
