After the appointment of the legendary midfielder Xavi Hernandez as the coach of Barcelona, the image of the New Camp began to change. Two physios were fired and 9 new rules were made in the club. Failure to comply will result in fines or penalties.
This time it is as if Xavi is bringing some new surprises. Despite rumors circulating in the air that Brazilian star Dani Alves is coming to Barcelona, this time the Spanish media Marca has confirmed it. Barcelona representatives are now trying to get Alvez to join the team.
Alves, a 36-year-old Brazilian defender, ended his contract with Brazilian club Sao Paulo in September. He is now in the transfer market as a free agent.
Barcelona were unwilling to bring back Alves during the tenure of the recently departed coach Ronald Koeman; But the club's views have changed since the recent appointment of Xavi.
Xavi believes Alves' experience and leadership need to be valued. He believes Alves will have a positive effect on the dressing room. So Barcelona wants to announce his return to the team very soon.
Alves will create a competitive environment for the club's young right back Sergino Dest and Oscar Mingueza, as well as help them add new tactics to their game.
The legendary Brazilian defender joined Barcelona from Sevilla in 2008. He left Barcelona in 2016 and joined Juventus. He has won 23 trophies for Barcelona.
