Alves Could Be Set For One Final Career Move After Leaving PSG
Dani Alves could be set for one final career move as the decorated right-back has offered himself to Barcelona.
The 36-year-old has announced that he’s leaving Paris Saint-Germain after two years in the French capital.
And it appears he’s angling for a return to Spain. The Brazilian has offered himself to Barcelona according to RAC1.
Alves enjoyed eight trophy-laden seasons at Barcelona before departing for Juventus in 2016, though he’s hoping to end his illustrious career with the Catalan outfit who continue to bolster their side ahead of the new season.
The La Liga champions have already snapped up Frenkie de Jong and Emerson, among others.
Alves, who would provide cover at right-back, posted a heartfelt message on social media as he confirmed his exit from PSG.
“Today I close another cycle in my life, a cycle of victory, learning and experiences,” he wrote accompanied with a picture of himself with the trophies he has won at the Ligue 1 giants.
“I would like to thank the PSG family for the opportunity to together build a page in the history of this club. I would like to thank all the staff for their affection, respect and complicity from day one… you make this club a little more special.
“It was two years of resilience and continuous reinventing to fulfil my mission, but in life everything has a beginning, a middle and an end and now the time has come to put that final point here.
“I apologise if at any point I was not up to the pitch, I apologise if at some point I made a mistake, just tried to give my best. Thanks to all the companions for the moments lived, the laughter together, the boredom that your lazy spirits have put me through.
“If you ever remember me, be like the GOOD CRAZY of each day, with a beautiful smile on your face, with a pure energy of soul, as a professional worker and committed to the goals … as someone who just wanted to [be] better each day and you tried to make them understand the true meaning of the word team.
“A big hug to all and hope you do not miss my crazy things. With great affection GoodCrazy!!”
