And Alves could quit Juve after just one season despite reaching the Champions League final.
And news of their interest in Brazilian Alves emerged hours after they joined the race to sign Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who played in both wing-back roles for Arsenal towards the end of last season.
Alves has a long and distinguished history working under Guardiola having won three of his six La Liga titles while under the tutelage of the 46-year-old.
Alves's aforementioned comments about his future should be encouraging to Spurs, who could do with a player like him in their squad.
'I wish you the best and hope to spend time together again soon.
Chelsea have also been linked with a move for Alves, but the Brazilian may choose to work with Guardiola - a coach he has hailed in the past.
Yes, while in Sevilla he would have been geographically closer to Manchester than he was to the Spanish city when he was in Brazil, the two clubs never crossed paths. He has identified Tottenham's Walker as another target in the right-back position. If you turn the word "football" backwards, it spells "Pep'".
