The Sports Commission considers that renewing the full-back would be the best option
Dani Alves' situation might change drastically. The player is going from being ignored to be the priority regarding renewals, according to the newspaper Sport.
The initial strategy was to incorporate a substitute for the right-back, since the current options (Martín Montoya and Douglas Pereira) are not convincing. The chosen man was Porto's full-back Danilo, but after starting negotiations, the Sports Commission saw some difficulties: He has already started to negotiate with two other teams (Real Madrid and Manchester United) and the Portuguese Team told them that they won't give up asking for the €40m clause. Despite Danilo being Neymar's friend, it seems difficult he ends signing for Barça.
They might offer a two-year contract
So according to Sport, Ariedo Braida (the man in the club in charge of solving the full-back problem) opted for Alves' renewal. The player has the support of Luis Enrique, who would be really pleased to count on him one more year. He might renew for two years. A good option in terms of money.
Over the last months, Alves' agent has been saying they didn't have any offer from Barça and that they were open to hear external offers. Will it be too late for Barça to try to keep Alves in the club? We'll see what happens in the next days...
