Dani Alves hits out at Barcelona for showing him ‘lack of respect’
Dani Alves helped Barcelona to the La Liga title this season but could leave the club on a free transfer this summer.
Dani Alves has criticised Barcelona for a lack of respect regarding his contract situation and the 32-year-old said he would decide on his future after the Champions League final on 6 June. Alves’s contract expires this summer and the defender has been linked with a number of European clubs. The Brazilian could yet sign a new deal with Barça but feels his contribution to the team is not truly valued. Alves said: "I may have two feet in the team but I’ve also got one foot, my body and nearly my head out of the club. I would like to stay here but not at any price. Not only in terms of money but in terms of respect. If I’m not show that respect, I’ll go to another club. I won’t accept that they underestimate what I have given to this club. They haven’t given me the value I deserve."
