Manchester City have missed out on one of their summer transfer targets after Brazil full-back Dani Alves decided to join Paris St-Germain.
Alves has opted against playing for Pep Guardiola again, following their trophy-ladened spell at Barcelona.
City were prepared to give the 34-year-old a two-year contract, but would not match the £230,000-a-week it is understood he will receive in France.
Tottenham’s Kyle Walker remains City’s top target at right-back.
As City have so far failed to agree a fee with Spurs for Walker, they currently are without a recognised right-back following the summer departures of out-of-contract duo Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna.
The Blues are understood to be relaxed about the situation despite the fact they will leave for a three-match tour of the United States – featuring matches against Manchester United, Real Madrid and Tottenham – on Monday.
Alves was a free agent after Juventus released him from his contract early following one season in Italy.
