The 30-year-old is currently under contract until 2015 but has attracted interest from around Europe, including defending Premier League champions Manchester United and fellow English club Chelsea.

The clause in Alves' contract which allows extra seasons to be added on ends in 2014, meaning the Brazil international will have to make decisions about future in the next two years.

However, Alves insists he is settled in La Liga and dismissed speculation, claiming he is living for the here and now.

Speaking to El Mundo Deportivo he said: "My future always appears in the papers.

"But I live day to day and year to year. It is a pleasure that the big European clubs are interested in my work but for now, I am very happy here, I am very clear.

"If I sign a deal, I fulfil the contract as long as the two parties are happy.

"Today, I say that Barcelona are content with my work and they are positive, as am I."

Alves has won four Spanish league titles and two Champions League winners' medals during his five years in the Catalan region.

Barcelona are currently top of La Liga, level on points with Atletico Madrid and head their Champions League group with one game to play before the knockout stages.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
