Danny Alves has confirmed that he will be leaving Barcelona for the second time in his life.
He left the Blaugrana in June 2016 to join Juventus and returned to Camp Nou in November 2021, although he had to wait until January to compete for the Catalan giants.
The 39-year-old right-back finished second in La Liga with one goal and four assists in 17 games.
Alves has previously stated his desire to stay with the club for next season’s World Cup qualifiers, but confirmed on Wednesday that this would not be the case.
“It’s time to say goodbye,” the Brazilian told Instagram. They have been dedicated to the club, the paint and the house for over eight years.
But as with everything in life, years pass, the paths change, and the stories are written in different places for a period of time – and so it was.
Alves continued to thank the club and its supporters for their support and said:
“I also sincerely wish those who have changed the history of that beautiful club. Won 23 titles: two trebles, one sex tuple and a great gold book.
“A beautiful cycle closes and opens up another challenge. The world will never forget him. Although he is 39 years old, he is still a good crazy lion.
“Long live the boat!”
