INCREDIBLE: He loves the club but Barça could kick him out very soon
One of the legends of the club return to the Camp Nou when he was needed, but now could be out after just six months
Dani Alves returned at FC Barcelona to spend there the last stretch of his career. The Brazilian felt the need to help FC Barcelona at its worst moment and with the support of Xavi Hernández and Joan Laporta, he was able to return to the club. However, his contract ran until the end of the June, so a decision had to be made.
Alves signed on a contract with wages of 100,000 euros until the end of the season, the minimum possible, with a bonus of three million euros if he played 60% of the games. The truth is that Alves has played 16 of the 22 games that Barça has played, exceeding the 60% required by contract.
"Almost 5 years fighting like crazy to get to this moment. I didn't know it would take so long, I didn't know it would be so difficult, but I knew in my heart and in my soul that that day would come", said the 38-year-old Alves when he arrived at FC Barcelona.
However, now the story seems to be different, and it could make Dani Alves very angry. The Brazilian defender wants to play for another six more months to make it into the Brazil team for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar but it seems that FC Barcelona do not want to renew his contract. After the confirmation of the continuity for another year of Sergi Roberto, the possible arrival of César Azpilicueta and the presence of Sergiño Dest, that position would be sufficiently covered.
In this context, Xavi would have to choose between Alves and Dest, and it seems that he has opted for the US international, especially valuing his youth and progression. For Dani Alves, not renewing with FC Barcelona could be a very hard blow as it could be difficult for him to find a new club six months before Qatar 2022. The defender remains silent for the moment.
