Dani Alves has ended speculation over his future by signing a two-year contract extension with Barcelona.

The 32-year-old defender was due to be a free agent this summer after reportedly stalling on a new deal.

That led to speculation that he could be on the move, with Manchester United, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain as potential destinations.

However, the Brazilian has now committed his future to Barca by signing a contract until 2017, with an option for a further year.

A statement from Barcelona read: "Barcelona announces that Dani Alves has accepted the club's proposal to renew his contract that expired on June 30.

"The new deal will see the player tied up for two seasons, until June 30, 2017, with an option for a third."

The announcement comes on the same day that Pedro and Jordi Alba penned new long-term contracts and just 24 hours after Aleix Vidal signed from Sevilla.
