Spanish La Liga top side Barcelona has decided to end Dani Alves’s contract which is like a betrayal to the Brazilian who accepted pay-cut just return to the club. The club confirmed the Brazilian will be leaving Barcelona for a second time after returning to the club last year. The 39-year-old right-back rejoined Barcelona in November, five years after he left the Nou Camp for Juventus.
Barcelona to end Dani Alves Contract
Dani Alves made 407 appearances for Barcelona, winning six La Liga titles. Speaking about the recent development the player said: “I would like to thank all the staff for the opportunity they gave me to return to this club and to be able to wear that wonderful shirt again. You don’t know how happy I am.”
He also said: “It closes a very beautiful cycle and opens another even more challenging one,” he added in a post on his social media page on Instagram. During his initial eight-year spell with Barcelona, Alves also won the Champions League three times and four Copa del Rey titles, among 23 trophies.
The former Sevilla player won Serie A with Juventus in 2016-17 and Ligue 1 with Paris St-Germain in both 2017-18 and 2018-19, with a move to Sao Paulo preceding his return to the Nou Camp. He started both Brazil’s wins over Japan and South Korea this month and will hope to be a part of his nation’s World Cup squad later this year.
