BARCELONA on Friday evening announced that they have reached agreement for Dani Alves to rejoin the club for the rest of the season.
There have been plenty of rumors flying about regarding a possible return for Alves but it seems that new coach Xavi is keen to have the Brazilian on board again.
Here’s the club’s official statement:
“Barcelona and Dani Alves have reached an agreement in principle for the player to join the football first team for the remainder of the current season. The Brazilian will be joining training from next week but will not be able to play until January,” Barcelona’s official website quoted the club president.
Alves recently led the Samba side to 2020 Olympics football tournament triumph in Tokyo.
Alves could make his debut on January 2 when Barcelona head to Real Mallorca in La Liga.
