Dani Alves would still be a Barcelona player next season if it was up to Neymar.
The 32-year-old is out of contract this summer and Barca seem reluctant to offer him a new deal.

Manchester United are reportedly considering bringing him to Old Trafford. Louis van Gaal will allow Rafael da Silva to leave and is not sure that Antonio Valencia is a long-term answer at right-back.
But Neymar is convinced that Alves can still play a role at the Camp Nou.
“I hope that Dani Alves stays,” the 23-year-old told Sky Sports. “If I was the president I would have renewed his contract already.”
Alves has won five La Liga titles, three Copa del Rey crowns and the Champions League twice during his seven years with the Catalan giants.
