Coach Mano Manezes confirmed that the three players over the age of 23 would be Marcelo, Milanís Thiago Silva and Hulk of FC Porto.
Alves recently recovered from a collarbone injury and was keen on
representing his country but will now concentrate on rejoining the Catalans for the pre-season program.
He responded to the news via his official Twitter account saying: ďThanks for your support. Life goes on and good luck to that group of fine players. They'll make sure we're well represented.Ē
Brazil have put together a strong squad including the likes of Neymar, Alexandre Pato, and Lucas Moura as they go in search of their first Olympic gold medal.
