Why Barcelona is unlikely to approve the return of Dani Alves

Why Barcelona is unlikely to approve the return of Dani Alves

On Saturday you will get an idea of ​​the chances that Barcelona will choose to bring Dani Alves back to the club in the coming weeks.

‘I just have to call …’

The name of the right back Alves, of course, has returned to the headlines in Catalonia during the last 24 hours.

This comes after widespread reports that the Brazilian icon was ready to make himself available to the Blaugrana were followed by Alves this morning to confirm it.

Speaking in an interview with Spanish media Sport (quoted by AS), the 38-year-old explained:

“I came out saying that when Barça needed me and wanted me, I would be at their disposal no matter where I was. The affection, love and respect that I have for this club is too much. If Barça think they need me, they just have to call. I still think that I can contribute anywhere, but more at Barça because of the number of young people they have now ”.

“In all the places I have been, I have always thought that the perfect combination is the experience with youth. There will come a time when the youth will mature and the elders will leave. It is a natural cycle, but in football mistakes have been made and this process has accelerated. Processes cannot be sped up. Mixing is essential. ‘

Technically, Alves could be picked up by his former club at any time, due to his free-agent status.

The international, 119 international times, last played for Sao Paulo in his home country, Brazil, but opted to terminate his contract last month following a salary dispute.

Barça impassive

And, as described above, on Saturday night, a glimpse was provided of the chances that the management at the Camp Nou would choose to sanction the return of their only defensive standout.

The news, however, will be seen as a blow by the Barça faithful who remained hopeful in what would have been a historic reunion.

According to growing reports in the Spanish media, Joan Laporta and company, as things stand, remain uninterested in the prospect of Alves’ return.

This comes with those in a position of power in Catalonia concerned that such a move would bring the development of players like Sergino Dest and Oscar Mingueza to a halt due to increased competition for venues:
