Barcelona have announced Manchester City target Dani Alves will leave the club when his contract expires next summer.

The Brazilian was linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium earlier this year, with reports indicating the Premier League champions were prepared to pay £15million for his signature.

Rumours of a deal for the 31-year-old went quiet as the end of the 2013-14 season approached, with City having decided to turn to Arsenal's Bacary Sagna instead due to the financial restrictions Uefa imposed.

Despite bringing in Sagna, City could now reignite their interest in Alves after Barcelona confirmed he would not be offered a new deal when his old one runs out in 2015.

"We are very happy that Dani Alves has stayed here [this season]," sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta said.

"Both sides have agreed that his contract will finish in 2015."

City won't be the only club interested in Alves though, with Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool also said to be big fans of the former Sevilla full-back.
