DANI ALVES FUTURE

The Barcelona right-back was quoted as saying by El Mundo Deportivo: "I don't know where I will play next season. I will meet with Barcelona and make a decision. If the club want me to stay, I will remain at Barcelona. I have an ongoing contract and I am happy to stay. But it does not depend solely on me. I have given my all for Barcelona ever since I got here, even if we have not won much in the last two years, which has left me feeling kind of empty."
