Blanc: Alves will stay at Barca

Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc has claimed that Dani Alves “intends to stay” at Barcelona after conceding defeat in his attempts to sign the right-back.

The 32-year-old’s contract with La Blaugrana is still due to expire on June 30, having failed to agree terms on an extension, but the man in charge of the French champions believes the player will eventually pen a renewal.

“I don’t think Dani Alves will join PSG,” he told reporters.

“Dani Alves’ contract with Barcelona is due to expire, but he intends to stay there.”
