Dani Alves has expressed his happiness after agreeing a three-year contract extension with Barcelona.
Speculation over the Brazilian's future was finally brought to an end on Tuesday night when Barca confirmed that he had decided to commit his future to the club.
Following protracted talks over a new deal, reports had surfaced that an agreement might not be reached and the right-back would look elsewhere.
However, Alves has now insisted he is overjoyed to be staying at Camp Nou until 30th June, 2015, by which time he will be 32.
"Being at the club for so many years is a dream," Alves, who joined Barca from Sevilla in 2008, told reporters in Brazil.
"I'm playing at one of the world's most desired teams, which is making history.
"The most important thing is that I'm happy and I want to make the most of it.
"It is a privilege and a joy to be here."
Alves is currently with the Brazil squad ahead of this weekend's international friendly against Scotland in London.
