"Barcelona has reached an agreement with Dani Alves to extend his contract with the club for the next three seasons, until June 30, 2015," it said in a statement on its website.

"The signing will take place tomorrow, Wednesday."

The 27-year-old Brazil international's current contract runs out in June 2012 and renewal talks had dragged on amid reports of a possible move to Manchester City.

Barcelona-based sports daily Mundo Deportivo reported in January that Alves had turned down the chance of a contract extension to 2015 that would have placed him in the same wage bracket as teammates like captain Carles Puyol.
