Jordi Alba has once again made it clear he is not thinking about leaving Barcelona and wants to continue with the club.
There have been a few whispers that Barca would quite like to offload Alba, as he’s due a lot of money next season in deferred payments, but he doesn’t want to go anywhere.
“I see myself here next year. I have not thought about anything other than continuing to play here for Barca and to keep winning trophies,” he said.
“I can still give a lot more when I am playing. When not, I can help my team-mates, which is what I am doing at the moment. And that is important.
“Barca has given me so much — given me everything — when I was small and when I returned to the first team. I have enjoyed it so much and still enjoy it now.
“Playing for Barcelona is the best place. I always want to win all the trophies I can. That is my mindset every time a season starts with Barcelona. And it will be like that next year.”

Alba is also facing a real battle for his place this season, due to the emergence of Alejandro Balde, who has featured regularly at left-back. The veteran has made 12 La Liga starts compared to Balde’s 22.
