Barcelona has reported that it has reached “an agreement in principle” with Brazilian Dani Alves for him to join “the first soccer team for the remainder of this season.”
The club adds in a statement that “the Brazilian player will join training next week, but will not be able to make his debut until January.”
“Soon the club will report the details of its presentation as a new player of the first football team,” he concludes.
Barcelona’s new coach, Xavi Hernández, asked the club to negotiate the return to the Barça team of Dani Alves, who had volunteered after leaving the discipline of Brazilian Sao Paulo in September.
Thus, the 38-year-old right-back will once again wear the Barça shirt after being one of the pillars of the team that won the sextet of titles in 2009 with Pep Guardiola as coach and Xavi Hernández commanding midfield.
