The Brazilian has angered Barcelona after participating in a friendly without consulting the medical staff. Alves managed 25 minutes in the game and has recently undergone surgery on a fractured collarbone.
Barcelona are thinking about disciplining the Brazilian defender. Alves has commited his future to Barca this month, but after this incident it may affect the 29-year-old's relationship with the club. Alves has also got fed up with the rumours linking him away from the club and has accused Barca of not attempting to dismiss these rumours. Manchester City will see this as an opportunity to bid for the full-back with his future uncertain.
