Sevilla´s much-admired full-back Daniel Alves is staying tight-lipped on his future plans as he focuses on Wednesday night´s UEFA Cup final against Espanyol at Hampden Park.

The Brazilian, whose raids along the right flank are comparable to those of compatriot Roberto Carlos on the left, has had another outstanding season in Spain, and he is determined to be careful about what he says - knowing he is being linked with clubs across Europe.

"It´s a complicated topic and right now it´s an awkward moment to talk about it," Alves told ahead of Sevilla´s all-Spanish in Glasgow. "This is a period where we can´t afford to get distracted by anything, we have to focus on the games and we´ve got a lot at stake."
