BARCELONA RIGHT BACK Dani Alves is set to leave the Catalan giants after rejecting an offer to extend his contract beyond the end of the season, his agent said yesterday.

Dinorah Santana said Barca had offered the 31-year-old a deal that could stretch from one year to three should he play in over 60% of his side’s games each season.

However, Alves has been heavily linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United among a host of other top European clubs and Santana said he had better offers on the table from other clubs.

“He would accept three years, but the condition that a player plays 60 percent of the games every year for me is not a three-year deal, but a one year,” said Santana.

“Dani has a concrete offer on the table for a three-year deal plus the option for an extra year with a better wage than he has here and a signing on fee.

“Barca at the moment have told me that they will not match those figures and we understand that.”
