Alves open to City Move

Barcelona fullback Daniel Alves knows the door is open to a move to Manchester City.

The Brazil international knows City attempted to sign him in the summer as he waited to open new contract talks with Barca.

Alves is due to begin negotiations after international week, but won't shut the door on a move to City.

AS says City officials have maintained contact and assured Alves: "If there are problems, know that our door is always open."

Dani: Ibra Lacked Patience

Barcelona's Dani Alves feels Zlatan Ibrahimovic lacked the patience to fit into the club's playing system.

Ibrahimovic moved to AC Milan after only one season with the Catalans. With the likes of Lionel Messi, Xavi and Iniesta dominating on the pitch, the striker failed to have the same impact as he had had at Inter Milan.

Commenting on the reasons for his departure, Alves told El Mundo Deportivo: "Perhaps 'Ibra' lacked patience, maybe he did not fit in our team and our game system and did not wait long enough to adapt."

Alves Happy at Barca

There has been much speculation going around about whether or not Dani Alves will be offered a new contract extension at Camp Nou but Alves is confident that he will be with the Spanish giants for years to come. With just 2 years remaining on Alves’s contract, Barcelona have yet not to offer the Brazilian defender a extension on his contract.
