Daniel Alves to extends his contract until 2015
The Brazilian winger is the second top assister in Barcelona, only behind Lio Messi.
Daniel Alves has become a vital part of Pep Guardiola’s scheme. It is not that the Cule boss does not have alternatives on the wings (Adriano has showed strong credentials to be part of the starting eleven during the last few weeks, and let’s not forget Maxwell).
“I don’t feel Barcelona have been doing their best to renew my contract” said Alves a few weeks ago. Chelsea, Manchester City and many other teams have been following the negotiation process closely, but both parts seems to have finally agreed on the future of the Brazilian international
“We’ve looked around in the market, and there is no one like Alves” said Rosell a few days ago. “No other player on his position steps on the opposite area as often, he’s one of a kind” added Guardiola.
Alves’ renovation comes at a moment of great need for Barcelona, with team’s captain Carles Puyol struggling with injuries and Eric Abidal sidelined for the rest of the season.
Barcelona is leading La Liga with a comfortable five-points advantage over Real Madrid. Much of Barcelona’s success has to do with Lio Messi’s brilliant individual capabilities, scoring 27 goals in 26 Liga games with 16 assistances. When focused on the attack, Dani Alves can keep up with the Argentinean pace, multiplying the offensive perspectives.
In 26 Liga games this season, Alves has already paid Guardiola with 13 assistances, three of them to the Argentinean monster. “What I want is for them to value me depending on my importance and influence within the squad. If they do that, I’ll be over the moon” said Alves weeks ago. It seems highly unlikely for anyone to ignore the major role the Brazilian plays on Guardiola’s scheme.
Now Daniel Alves and Barcelona must focus on the matches to come, for La Liga’s title, the Champions League and the Spanish Cup are at stake.
