On Tuesday, Barcelona announced that Alves had signed a new two year deal at the Nou Camp, taking the Brazilian up to June 2017.

The flying full back has the option of staying at Barcelona for a further season after that.

Alves has been a key player for Barcelona since signing from Sevilla and appeared to be back to his best during 2014/2015.

Speculation has been rife for some time about Alves and whether he would stay at Barcelona with Manchester United and AC Milan interested.

Alves reportedly wanted better pay at Barcelona, but in the end it appears the La Liga winners had their way.

Just after Barcelona announced the new deal, Alves posted the video below on Instagram, from the Nou Camp treble celebrations, it simply says: “Following my heart”.

A second video quickly followed from Alves on Instagram, this one said: “Seguindo meu coração e daqueles que me amam” – “Following my heart and those who love me”.
