Alves’s agent Dinorah Santana certainly hasn’t moved to quash speculation of a Barcelona exit, indeed the comments made by the former Sevilla man’s representative pretty much act as a ‘come and get me’ plea.
‘He will give his all whilst he is here, that’s all I can say,’ he said. ‘We’ll have to see.
