The Brazil international’s future had been one of the main talking points throughout the transfer window, with Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool among those rumoured to be among his suitors.

However, in the end he opted to stay put and continue fighting for his place under new coach Luis Enrique for another season.

But this will now undoubtedly be his last at the Nou Camp, after sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta confirmed that he would not be kept on beyond the end of the current campaign.

“We are very happy that Dani Alves has stayed here [this season],” he said at a news conference on Tuesday.

“Both sides have agreed that his contract will finish in 2015.”

Alves signed for Barcelona in the summer of 2008 from fellow Spanish side Sevilla, and has since gone on to make 300 appearances for the club, scoring 20 goals in the process.

His place in the side has recently come under threat, though, from Barca’s academy graduate Martin Montoya.
