Barcelona are ready to offer a new two years contract to right-back Dani Alves to avoid his summer departure as a free-agent, reports in Spain claim.

Being out of contract at the Camp Nou at the end of the current campaign, Alves is currently free to negotiate a move to another club, with Manchester United, Liverpool and Paris Saint Germain reportedly monitoring his situation.

After the Brazil international himself admitted earlier in the campaign he was likely to end his career in the Premier League, he has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford and Anfield.

Louis van Gaal is said to be desperately looking for a right-back to replace out of favour Rafael, while Brendan Rodgers is also looking to bolster the position amid the expected departure of Glen Johnson.

And even though recent reports in Spain assured Alves has already signed a pre-contract agreement to move to PSG instead, the Brazil right-back quickly denied it.

However, his agent Dinorah Santana admitted last month that the player was in advance negotiations to move to another club as they understood that Barcelona were not interested in renewing him.

But it looks that the Catalan club have rethought their plans over Alves as Catalan-based newspaper Sport claimed that the club are going to take advantage of the international break to begin the negotiations with the player to commit his future to the club with a new deal.

Sport claim that Barcelona are ready to offer Alves a two year contract extension as Luis Enrique, still considers him a crucial part of the squad as he has proved this season by handing him the right-back starting role.

Furthermore, it is understood that the Catalans have been forced to reconsider their plans over Alves after missing out their top target to replace him after Porto star Danilo, who had also been linked with United, reportedly signed a pre-contract agreement to join Real Madrid at the end of the campaign.
