The 34-year-old is expected to reunite with former FC Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola at Manchester City in the coming weeks.

Alves made the announcement via his Instagram account on Tuesday.

"I would like to thank all the Juventus fans for the year I experienced, the teammates for welcoming me like the professionals that they are, for a club that wins and reaches finals," Alves wrote in an Instagram post.

"I think that my respect for this club and its supporters were my dedication, my passion and all the efforts to make this club a greater club every single day.

"I apologise to the Juventus fans if sometimes they thought I had done something to offend them. This was never my intention, I just have a very spontaneous approach to life that few understand… although it appears that I am not perfect, and however, my heart is pure.

"Today ends our professional relationship and I will take with me all of those who with love and true heart make Juve a great club. As everyone knows, I always say what I think and feel…

"I feel that I should say thank you to Mr Marotta for the opportunity he gave me, he's a great professional and someone who loves his job like few others…

"I don't play football for money, I play football because I love the profession and those who are part of it. I leave it up to you to judge what I have done and worked for.

"I love football and money will never keep me in any place."
