Alves hints Barca ‘dream’ is over

Dani Alves has dropped his biggest hint yet that he will leave Barcelona this summer, tearfully admitting “I don’t know if this dream has come to an end”.

The right-back, whose contract expires on June 30, could not hold back the tears during La Blaugrana’s end-of-season party on Sunday as he conceded his future at Camp Nou was all but over.

“I thank all my teammates, the staff and all of you [the fans] for making me happy at this club,” he began.

“I don’t know how much longer this dream will go on for. I don’t know if [this dream] has come to an end, but I hope it stays eternal.

“I’ve always been happy here and I’ll still be happy when I leave because I’m one of you.”
