Barcelona right-back Dani Alves has revealed his agent was approached over a potential summer switch to Paris Saint-Germain – and while the Brazilian said he was happy to stay in Spain he refused to rule out a move to the Ligue 1 side in the future.

PSG embarked on a remarkable spending spree this summer, signing the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva, and Lucas Moura as they look to leave a lasting impression on the Champions League following the arrival of their Qatari owners in 2011.

The French outfit were also linked with moves for Luka Modric and Hulk, and now Alves has revealed he was also approached over making the switch from Barcelona to Paris.

"It is true that PSG has called many people and built a beautiful project," he told RMC on Thursday.

"This summer, they spoke to my representatives and consulted to see if they could do a transfer.

"But the possibility was very low because my price was very high and suddenly they turned to other players.

Alves was briefly linked with a move away from the Nou Camp over the summer – and Alves says he could leave Barcelona one day, if he becomes surplus to requirements.

"As to whether I could play in Paris, you never know what the future holds, and I don't have to close doors. If one day, Barcelona do not want me anymore [then who knows]."
