Dani Alves will have his medical “in a matter of days” as his switch to Manchester City from Juventus nears completion.
Alves is due in Manchester at the start of next week to tie up his free transfer to the Etihad.
He will sign a two-year deal and re-unite with his former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola.
The terms of the deal have already been agreed, according to Mirror.
Alves, 34, has completed his holiday and will begin pre-season training with Manchester City next weekend.
The Brazilian will then jet off a week later with his new team-mates on their pre-season tour of the United States.
