Alves hopeful on Brazil return

Valencia goalkeeper Diego Alves has not ruled out leaving the club this summer and admitted he would be tempted by a move to Brazilian club Flamengo.

The 32-year-old shot-stopper is reportedly one of a number of players Los Che are hoping to move on this summer and earlier this month was linked with a move to Roma.

"I am under contract with Valencia CF until June 2019, but Flamengo is a club that attracts any player in the world" Alves is quoted by ESPN as telling Brazilian channel Esporte Interativo.

"One thing is to hear there is interest and another different issue is for the transfer to be done.

"I can't say that I would not return to Brazil or that I wouldn't play for Flamengo but in order for that to happen, the two clubs would have to negotiate between them."

The Brazilian has spent six seasons at the Mestalla after initially spending four years at Almeria.
