The Old Lady have a one-year option on the Brazilian but his agent met with Bianconeri officials on Monday in order to agree upon his release.
The former Barcelona star wants to reunite with Pep Guardiola at the Etihad and will likely join on a free transfer.
Though his next destination will only be revealed in the coming days, with Chelsea also keen.
Alves immediately adapted to life in Serie A after eight years with Barcelona, scoring six goals and assisting seven more as one of Massimiliano Allegri’s key players.
The 34-year-old helped the Bianconeri pick up the double – Serie A and the Coppa Italia – as well as reaching the Champions League final.
A heartbreaking defeat to Real Madrid in Cardiff denied Alves a second career treble and it now appears as if Alves is one and done in Turin.
City appear strong favourites given Alves’ admiration for Guardiola, who he recently described in a Players Tribune piece as a genius.
“He is a genius. I’ll say it again: a genius,” Alves said. “Pep would tell you exactly how everything was going to happen in a match before it even happened.”
Who will Dani Alves join this summer?
