Report: Liverpool FC to Make Offer to FC Barcelona for Dani Alves

David Ramos

The Reds have entered the battle for FC Barcelona's legendary full-back, Dani Alves.

According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Liverpool FC are set to make a €6.5 million offer for the Brazilian. Brendan Rodgers has shown interest in his services to either replace current right-back Glen Johnson or to be the Reds' left-back, a position they have had a real problem to cover lately.

Yes, this is a real low offer to make. But Liverpool allegedly believe that Barça is desperate to sell him, and since the Paris Saint-Germain rumors fell out and there's no real contender, it's possible that the Catalans might negotiate for that ammount in order to get the Alves situation solved as soon as possible.

Dani still wants to remain a Blaugrana:

"I want to talk to the club, express my desire and my goals to them, and see if they still want to work with me. When I meet with them we'll decide if I stay or not, because it's not just me or them who has to decide, it's all of us."

"Leaving is an option, yes, but I have to talk to the club. I have a contract, and want to finish it, but we've got to be on the same page. The truth is, I'm incredibly happy here at Barça. I might be repeating myself but that's just the way it is. I'm happy here, I've had great years and I want to stay. I just need to meet with the club to see if they feel the same way, then I'll stay".

But as it was reported in Spain last week, Barcelona doesn't feel the same way:

"According to a report from Diario Sport, Alves will meet with Barça's sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta and team coach Luis Enrique next week to make his exit official. Lucho has it clear in his mind that he doesn't count on Alves to be part of his plans. Instead, Enrique really wants to sign Colombia star Juan Cuadrado to replace the 31-year-old Brazilian."

AS Monaco is also another team interested in Alves, according to sources. Liverpool is set to enter the battle. And it seems less and less likely that Dani will stay.
