Report: Barcelona finally preparing Dani Alves contract renewal

Dani Alves has yet to decide his future, but Barcelona are reportedly ready to offer a new deal - according to reports in Mundo Deportivo.

Speculation... Everywhere... Which has been highly frustrating, to say the least, for Dani Alves and the uncertainty surrounding his future at Barcelona, as he tries to focus purely on his football.

Out of contract in the summer, the Brazilian has needed to remain patient, although he's indicated recently that his first option, and the one he wants most, is to remain at the Catalan club, although if that doesn't ultimately come to pass, he's more than conscious a wealth of clubs are already queuing up for his signature.

Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, PSG; all have been strongly linked with moves for Dani Alves – by the Daily Star, among others - but it now appears there could be light at the end of the tunnel for the player. According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are, at long last, now drafting up a new deal with the aim of ensuring that the 31-year-old stays beyond 30th June, when his current contract expires.

Following a recent trip to Paris with friends, Radio Marca claimed Dani Alves had agreed a three-year deal with PSG, although he angrily denied this, lambasting the Spanish outlet as having made up the story from nothing.

Suggestions surrounding the Barcelona camp are that Dani Alves will sit down for further talks with the club and potentially agree his new deal, thought to be a one-year plus one more optional, following the Clásico against Real Madrid this weekend.
