Valencia goalkeeper Diego Alves has reiterated his desire to remain at the club beyond the current season despite talk of a summer exit.
Los Che refused to let the experienced shot-stopper join Barcelona a while back, but they are now reportedly prepared to cash in on the 31-year-old.
Diego Alves is one of the club’s highest earners and with his latest performances not exactly up to the standard, Valencia hope to sell him in the summer transfer window.
However, it would appear as though the Brazilian has no plans to leave Mestalla any time soon, which may be a problem.
“I know that my face will be in the newspapers this summer, but I have a contract and I want to respect it,” Alves was quoted as saying to beIN SPORTS.
Alves will have another two years left on his deal at the end of the season, and, as things stand now, he is unlikely to leave the club.
It is important to note that the Brazilian is one of world’s best goalkeepers when it comes to penalty saves, having stopped 24 of 50 penalties that were awarded against Valencia in La Liga.
