Dani Alves: I was upset Barcelona did not deny transfer rumours

The Brazil international feels the Catalan club should have acted to dismiss speculation regarding his transfers as he looks to make his mark before leaving Camp Nou
Dani Alves has voiced his disappointment with Barcelona's decision not to deny rumours earlier this summer that he was set to leave the club.

Several reports suggested that the Brazil international was on his way out of the Blaugrana, with clubs such as Manchester City and Anzhi Makhachkala reportedly lined up to sign the right-back.

"It’s true that there were rumours that I would not be staying at Barca and I was upset that the club did not intervene," Dani Alves stated at a press conference.

"However, I am above that sort of thing and if the time comes when the club decide they don’t need me, I will just have to accept it.

The 29-year-old then proclaimed that he would like to leave part of his legacy at Barcelona when it does come time to depart.

"I would like to leave in the same way that I joined," he said. "I would like to think that when I leave, I would want to feel that I have left my mark, however small it is."

Dani Alves has a contract with Barcelona until June 2015.
