Luis Enrique wants him to continue, but not the board
Dani Alves is finishing contract this summer, just when Barça won't be able to sign due to FIFA's sanction, so alternatives to Alves are Martin Montoya, Douglas Pereira and Adriano Correia.
So the logical question is will Alves renew or not?

According to the newspaper Sport, Luis Enrique wants Alves to stay. The coach uses him in the big matches and thinks he has a great performance.
Internally the Brazilian's attitude and behavior in the trainings are well assessed. Even the technical staff believes he is the best when training and believe his renewal is a must.

On the other hand, according to Sport, we find the criterion of the Board. As for economic terms, the club would be more willing to let the Brazilian go. Last summer they already put the player on sale, but they did not get the great offer that they wanted. Moreover, they don't want to satisfy the economic claims of the player neither, because they are considered too high.
