Brazil right-back Dani Alves will leave Barcelona in the summer, the La Liga champions have confirmed.

Alves, 33, will depart the Nou Camp after eight years with the Catalan club which has seen him win six domestic league titles and the Champions League on three occasions.

The attack-minded full-back has been heavily linked with a move to Juventus or possibly linking up with former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

Dani Alves has decided to leave. It's a personal decision that we respect.

Neymar could be tempted by a move from Barcelona to Paris St Germain, according to his agent.

The Brazil forward, 24, has excelled as part of Barca's 'MSN' strikeforce alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, with the Catalan club six points clear at the top of the Primera Division, through to Copa del Rey final and in the Champions League quarter-finals.

He also has a release clause in his contract of 193million euros (£154m), according to his representative Wagner Ribeiro, who nevertheless feels a "dream" move is a possibility.

Neymar has a contract with Barca until 2018.

He feels good in Barcelona, he's loved over there and he's playing for the best team in the world. It's no small feat to impose yourself at such an enormous club.

But the prospect of living in a city like Paris and to play for a club like PSG - that's also a dream for every player.

We'll see in two years, when he will be at the end of his contract.

Cristiano Ronaldo hit a late winner to hand 10-man Real Madrid a shock 2-1 win in a fiery El Clasico and end Barcelona's long unbeaten run.

The Portuguese star pounced five minutes from the end of a pulsating La Liga clash at the Nou Camp, just moments after his captain Sergio Ramos had been sent off for the 20th time in his career.

Real had already come from behind with Karim Benzema scoring a superb equaliser to cancel out a Gerard Pique header early in the second half.

The defeat, on what was an emotional occasion for Barca in their first outing since the death of Johan Cruyff, was the Catalan side's first in 40 matches in all competitions.

It also provided a potential twist in the Primera Division title race, with Barca's lead over Atletico Madrid at the top now cut to six points and with Real just another point further behind.

It was Real's first win at the Nou Camp for three years and came in Zinedine Zidane's first Clasico in charge of the team.
