There has been much speculation going around about whether or not Dani Alves will be offered a new contract extension at Camp Nou but Alves is confident that he will be with the Spanish giants for years to come. With just 2 years remaining on Alves’s contract, Barcelona have yet not to offer the Brazilian defender a extension on his contract.
However, with reports from Spain stating that Premier League club -Manchester City- are looking to sign the 27-year, it will be interesting to see if Barcelona will now decide to offer Alves a extension or not. But regardless of the situation at hand, Dani Alves is still fine which whatever decision the club decides to do.
Dani Alves went on to say the following :
“I am not worried about it at all. I have a contract and am settled so if they Barca propose something then fantastic, but if not then that is fine.”
Alves is one player who has said he is very patient and understands that sometimes the club has to think about their next move. He also went on to say some words about his former teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic who was just with the club 1-year saying the the Swedish striker ‘lacked patience’. Now with AC Milan, Ibrahimovic has blamed Pep Guardiola saying it’s his fault as to why he left Camp Nou but Alves feels differently.
“Perhaps Ibra lacked patience. Maybe he didn’t fit in our team and the way we play and didn’t wait long enough to adapt.” Alves went on to say about his former teammate.
Think giving Alves a extension on his contract will be the right thing to do ? Would you rather him stay with the club or depart after his contract expires ? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below. Also, follow me on Twitter @Herb_Maldonado for more of the latest info.
