Alves, 30, has two years left on his contract at Barcelona, but has been mooted as a summer addition to the PSG squad as the club look to increase their options at right-back.

"I will never close the door on PSG or to another club. They're recruiting great players to try and do something beautiful in football," he told Canal+.

"They lack a little continuity in their squad, but they're on the right track. Some big stars and other players of great quality have arrived."

Newly-promoted Monaco could also be an option for the Brazil international, who knows that the principality club, funded by Russian billionaire Dmitri Rybolovlev, have the financial muscle to compete with PSG.

"I know there's a project which resembles that in Paris,” he explained. “There's a lot of speculation about great players. My door is always open."
