Barcelona are ready to meet Dani Alves's lucrative demands in order for him to commit his long-term future to the Camp Nou so the club avoids losing him for free this summer, reports in Spain claim.

The future of the Brazil international at the La Liga giants has been under increasing scrutiny in recent months as, having less than two months remaining on his contract at the Camp Nou, he has been free to negotiate a summer departure to another club since the start of 2015.

And after, earlier in the season, the 31-year-old full-back revealed he would like to have an experience in the Premier League, Alves has been heavily linked with Liverpool and Manchester United.

Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers is said to be in the market for a replacement for Glen Johnson, who will be out of contract at the end of June.

Meanwhile, United manager Louis van Gaal has earmarked the signing of a right-back as one of the top priorities of the summer, with winger Antonio Valencia forced to cover the position this season due to Rafael's poor form.

Earlier in April, Alves's agent Dinorah Santana suggested the player's future at the Camp Nou was all but over after he rejected the renewal offer made by the Catalans.

"The negotiations are over. Dani will see out his contract at Barcelona in the best possible manner," she said.

The Brazil international was said to be demanding a three-year deal that maintains his current salary but the Catalans initially offered him a shorter, less lucrative contract due to his age.

Recent reports claimed Alves rejected another offer from the Catalan club in favour of a move to Old Trafford in the summer.

But Marca now claims the Brazilian is closer than ever to staying at the Camp Nou after Barcelona agreed to meet his €9m (£6.5m, $10.2m) a year demands.

"Dani Alves's contract renewal finally looks set to go ahead. Barcelona have changed their stance and changed it dramatically," Marca claimed.

Marca points out that with Barcelona unable to sign any players this summer due to a transfer Fifa ban, they have no choice other than to meet his demands, as manager Luis Enrique does not have faith in Martin Montoya and Douglas fulfilling the role next season.

The Spanish newspaper claimed Alves has decided to strike a pre-contract agreement with PSG in order to commit his future to Barcelona and "the deal will be confirmed over the coming days".
