However, he is now a free agent and, according to journalist Nicolo Schira, discussions between Alves and Barcelona are ongoing about a possible comeback.

It was reported that Camp Nou bosses initially ruled out the move, but after Xavi was unveiled as Ronald Koeman’s successor, Alves would serve as the leader under his command.

As a result, it is reported that there is a meeting scheduled for the next few days to make a final decision on whether the 38-year-old returns for a second season.

Currently, both Xavi and the club’s president, Joan Laporta, are evaluating the role that Alves may have. He is seen as an experienced leader that young players can learn from.

Alves last played for Sao Paulo in his native Brazil, but remains a free agent after leaving.

His winning mentality would also be a huge boost for the fallen giants as they look to breathe new life into their stuttering season on multiple fronts.

Alves is said to be eager to finish his career in Catalonia in the meantime, and has his sights on showing up regularly to earn his spot in Brazil’s squad for next year’s World Cup.

He has confirmed that he has informed Barcelona of his willingness to play with them again, saying: ‘It would be a bit of advantage to say now that Barça needs me.

I was saying that when Barça needed me and wanted me, I would come back no matter where I was.

Alves joined Barcelona in 2008 and won countless trophies before lovingly departing in 2016.

‘There is too much love, respect and care for this house. If Barça think they need me, all they have to do is call.

I think I can add things wherever I go, but at Barça now especially with the young people they have.

“We were young once and we were not prepared to defend such a great responsibility as defending Barça, no matter how good they are or no matter how much people talk about them. Everything is new.

“It takes a mix of young and old to provide balance and the opportunity to fight for great things.”

Laporta is also open around the corner. He said: ‘Dani Alves helped the club in various ways, and he has also offered us his help from a sporting point of view.

As with (former captain Carles) Puyol, there is a very direct relationship. They can help if Xavi needs it. ‘

Alves signed for Barcelona from Sevilla and memorably won the treble with Pep Guardiola in his first season.
