Brazilian star Neymar has joined Lionel Messi in urging Barcelona to renew defender Dani Alves’ contract, reports Sport.

Neymar, who has now completed two years at the Catalan giants, believes his fellow countryman still has much to offer in defence for Barca.

In an interview with Spanish magazine Sport Neymar said: "I hope that he stays. If I were president I would renew his contract."

Neymar refused to delve further into Alves’ contract issues saying: ”To be more clear? Impossible,”

Alves has been linked to several clubs over the course of the season including Manchester United and French side Paris St Germain. 

The 32-year-old right-back may well play his final game for the club in the Champions League final on Saturday. His current deal expires on the 30th June, which will allow him to leave the club on a free.


Alves has been a a regular member of the team in Barcelona’s most successful era ever, winning 18 honours in the process, including two Champions Leagues, five league titles and three Copa del Rays’s.

It remains to be seen if superstars Neymar and Messi have the pulling power to force Barcelona’s hand and offer Alves a new deal.

Alves though is growing more and more frustrated with the board at Barcelona over the punishing ordeal and now looks set to leave the club, as he recently stated:

"There has been a lot of rubbish written, which I have been forced to put up with, and when push comes to shove, I have to come out and defend myself, and say what I have to say. I am with the team 200% but with the board about 10%. As it is, I have one foot, half a body and almost my head out of the club.”
