BARCELONA, Spain — Brazil back Dani Alves is meeting new Barcelona coach Luis Enrique in hopes of locking down his future at the Spanish league club.

The 31-year-old right back is in the last year of his deal, and has been linked with French club Paris Saint-Germain.

Alves arrived on Tuesday to speak with Enrique, "and after we meet we can decide if I continue or not. It's not just up to me. My idea is to fulfill the contract I signed but it has to be of mutual accord."

Since Alves' transfer from Sevilla in 2008, Barcelona has won 16 trophies including a pair of Champions Leagues and four domestic titles.

At the World Cup, Alves was relegated to substitute in the knockout stages after starting for Brazil in the pool stage.
