The Brazilian winger who arrived in Barcelona in the winter market has four games to finish convincing Xavi to stay with the team and keep dreaming of going to the World Cup.


Daniel Alves turns 39 today in full uncertainty about his sporting future . The Brazilian player rejoined Barcelona in this winter market after being left without a team. The Blaugrana team, given the lack of players who could play the role of right-back, opted to recover a footballer who did not have a team after winning the gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics with Brazil and who was looking for minutes to be able to fulfill his dream of playing a World Cup again. His contract was adapted to the sad economic reality of Barcelona and was subject to a renewal at the end of the season that, today, is unknown.


Xavi praises his performance and praises the fact that despite his age he has always given his best on the field of play while acting as the leader of a dressing room that is justifiably winning. Despite these praises, the coach left the Brazilian out of the list to play the Europa League , something that upset Alves, but he took it with experience. In a recent interview with Mundo Deportivo he acknowledged that this decision “hurt him, but I accepted it because I’m 38 years old, if he does it to me when I’m 25 we’ll end up in fistfights.” Beyond the fact that Daniel Alves is not, not by a long shot, the player he was in his last stage at Barcelona, ​​it cannot be denied that his presence in the team has helped Barcelona jump from ninth place to current second . In fact, with the starter, Barcelona has not lost any game. It may be a coincidence, but the data is there.
