Dani Alves will stay at Barcelona, says Rexach

The Brazilian defender has been linked with clubs such as PSG and Manchester United in recent months, but his current club remain hopeful he will stay put

Charles Rexach is confident Dani Alves will stay at Barcelona beyond the expiration of his contract at the end of the season.

The Brazil international has an expiring contract with the Camp Nou side and talks over a new deal have so far been unsuccessful.

Dani Alves’ agent, Dinorah Santana, revealed in April that Barcelona’s latest renewal offer was unsatisfactory and that negotiations had broken down, with the 31-year-old expected to be heading for the exit in the summer.

However, Rexach remains hopeful that an agreement will eventually be reached.

“I am one of those people who still sees him here next season. I’m convinced Dani Alves will remain at Barcelona,” Rexach, a member of Barcelona’s technical commission told Esports Cope.

The right-back joined Barcelona from Sevilla in the summer of 2008 and has since made over 300 appearances in all competitions for the Catalans.

He was part of the illustrious team that won La Liga, Copa del Rey, Champions League, Supercopa de Espana, European Supercup and Club World Cup in 2009.
