Luis Enrique and Dani Alves extend Barca deals

Spanish giants Barcelona have announced that defender Dani Alves has agreed a two-year contract extension with an option for a third season.

The 32-year-old Brazilian international, who had been linked with a move to Manchester United, joined Barcelona from Sevilla in 2008, winning 19 trophies including three Champions League titles, five La Liga crowns and three King’s Cups.

Alves has made 343 appearances, more than any other non-Spaniard, and is one of seven players who helped the Catalans clinch two stunning trebles.

The right back will face stiff competition after Barca signed Aleix Vidal from Sevilla on Sunday but the Spanish international won’t be able to play until January due to a Fifa-imposed transfer ban.
