Former player agent José María Minguella believes Barcelona will struggle to secure Dani Alves to a new contract.

Minguella says Alves wants to be the second highest paid at Barca behind Lionel Messi.

"It will not be easy to renew Dani Alves. He wants to be paid more than Andres Iniesta and Xavi and become the second highest-paid on staff," said Minguella.

"Alves is a great player, but not decisive. The player has a strong personality and calls for wage levels that cannot be paid."
