Daniel Alves prepared to leave Barcelona over contract talks

Daniel Alves is ready to leave Barcelona if they do not meet his contract demands.

The fullback's current deal runs to 2012.

He told El Mundo Deportivo: “My goal is to fulfil my contract until 2012. If the club believes that I am still useful, I will stay longer. If they think that I can serve no more use to the team, I leave and nothing happens, this is football.

“I moved from Sevilla to Barcelona, and could move from Barcelona to another side – I have no problem not being here. Obviously I would love to stay here as long as possible, and I try to work hard every day to make this relationship last.

“I’m confident that we will agree, but we are still a bit distant from what I want. At the moment, we are having meeting but it has not advanced and not on our part. Now there are differences. What I want is the value of my performances on the field.”

Furthermore, Alves refused to rule out a move elsewhere, claiming that there has been interest from the England regarding a possible move.

He added: “I know something is coming in from the Premier League, but that is up to my representative. I am here to play.”
