Dani Alves has reiterated his desire to stay with Barcelona ahead of tonight’s trip to Sevilla.
The Brazilian full-back has so far failed to agree a new deal with the Catalan giants, and admits he wants parity with the club’s top earners if he is to sign a new contract.
Alves told Sport newspaper: “I don't feel the club have bent over backwards to renew my contract - it's a feeling I have.
“I just want an agreement to be reached now, or within a few days.
“I don't like the fact there have been so many rumours - I'm as committed to this project as anyone in the squad.”
“He added: “I won't be a hypocrite - if the club want to replace me it could cost them dear.
“What Dani wants is for the club to value him depending on his importance and influence within the squad.
“If they do that, I'll be delighted and if not, thanks for these years.”
While league leaders Barcelona head into this game on the back of a 1-0 win over Real Zaragoza and a Champions League victory over Arsenal, Sevilla will be looking to bounce back from the 2-0 defeat to Athletic Bilbao.
