Dani Alves puts pen to paper on a new contract at Barcelona

Dani Alves has renewed his contract at Barcelona for two more years.

Barcelona announced that Dani Alves signed a new contract with the club on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old had been holding off extending his existing deal that expired at the end of June, doing little to distance himself from rumors of a summer departure.

It now appears though that the defender eventually relented and has committed to finishing his career with the Catalans.

"FC Barcelona announce that Dani Alves has accepted the club’s proposal for the renewal of his contract," a statement on the Blaugrana’s official website read.

"The new agreement linking the two parties will run for two more seasons until 30 June 2017, plus an optional third season."

Alves played a key role in Luis Enrique’s side securing a magnificent treble of the Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League titles last term.

The Brazilian was a 35 million euro signing from Sevilla in 2008, and has since won five league titles along with three Champions League ones.
