Dani Alves To Sign Contract Extension With Barcelona

Brazilian right back Dani Alves has just agreed to sign a contract extension with Barcelona, according to a statement on the club's official website. Alves, 27, joined the Catalans in 2008 from Sevilla for a fee believed to as been as high at £30M, and his contract had originally been due to expire following the 2011/12 season. The impending end of Alves' contract had become a bit of a problem for Barcelona, as the defender had apparently rejected an extension offer earlier in this year and was subsequently linked with a move to Manchester City.

Apparently talks of negotiations collapsing were off the mark (surprise!) and Alves has now agreed to an extension through the end of the 2014/15 season. And really, who can blame him? He'll be getting paid plenty of money to play on one of the greatest teams ever seen - living like a god in Barcelona sounds much better to us than being a slightly richer one in Manchester. The signing itself will take place on Wednesday.
