BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Brazil defender Daniel Alves says he wants to stay at Barcelona even though the Spanish champions haven't yet offered him a contract extension.

The 30-year-old Alves is out of contract after this season.

Alves says he is happy at Barcelona but "a club is like a business and when a business doubts how it's working, it's normal to look for alternatives."

Barcelona has won 14 trophies — including two Champions League titles — since Alves' 30 million euros (then $46 million) transfer from Sevilla before the start of the 2008-09 season.
