On the front page of Sport, it’s claimed Dani Alves ‘wants to return’ to Barcelona after he announced his decision to leave Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent.
The Spanish champions’ technical secretary is considering him as an option, if Nelson Semedo decides to leave the club.
It’s claimed the former Juventus man still maintains contact with Barcelona and his idea is to end his playing career with the La Liga winners.
However, the major problem to conclude the operation is that the Brazil international turned 36 last month and it will be an unusual operation for the Blaugrana to complete the player’s signing, considering his age.
Despite the South American’s age, the fullback has shown his ability to perform at the top level for PSG and Brazil.
It is assumed the defender is likely to demand better wages from Ernesto Valverde’s side, since they do not have to spend on his transfer.
There could be a ‘domino effect’ if Barcelona end up signing Alves.
His arrival may also give Moussa Wagué enough time to settle into the first team, while they also have a backup of Sergi Roberto, who can play in the right-back position.
Barca could offload Semedo and his sale would help them raise funds to sign left-back Raphael Guerreiro from Borussia Dortmund.
If they are left without that money, they may shift their focus on Filipe Luis, who is also available on a free transfer.
Therefore, Sport end their report stating ‘Dani Alves’ is a possibility that should not be ruled out.’
