Alves, who is eager to quit the Abe Lenstra Stadium in a bid to further his international career with Brazil, told his personal website that he is hoping to tie up a transfer this week.
"I have spent the last couple of days with family and friends in Belo Horizonte and I return to Holland on Tuesday," he said. "I hope to complete my transfer to either of the two clubs (City or Fenerbahce) then."
