Dani Alves: Continues to be linked with a summer move away from Barcelona

Dani Alves: Continues to be linked with a summer move away from Barcelona

The Brazilian full-back has spent the last six years at La Liga giants Barcelona, helping them to 16 major titles.

He is, however, facing an uncertain future, with his current contract set to expire in 2015.

It has been reported that Barcelona may be willing to cash in on his services this summer, rather than risk losing him for nothing in 12 months' time.

The likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Manchester City have been heavily linked with the 30-year-old, with a £15million deal mooted, but Alves maintains that he is not looking past the end of the season as Barcelona once again find themselves challenging for domestic and European honours.

He said in Le 10 Sport: "We've been talking about my future at the club since the year I arrived.

"I live in the moment, I take every year as it comes.

"For me, it's a compliment that some big teams are interested in me, that means I'm doing my job. But the truth is that I am here, I see my job as very intense every year.

"I think for a story to work, both parties must agree, a bit like in a relationship. Otherwise, it separates. At present, I know that both parties are satisfied."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
