But the fullback said: "There was an offer from Real Madrid. But that train has now passed. I'm very happy at Barcelona."

Barca teammates Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta have also been linked with Real and Alves added: "I think these two players will never leave Barca because of the respect they have for the club and the affection they have for the fans.

"A player wants to be happy, feel loved and play big games. They have it all, so why change?"
