Brazilian Dani Alves joins a club Mexican free of charge

Pumas UNAM, a club Mexican, said last night that he signed veteran Brazilian defender Dani Alves free of charge, a month after the end of his second term with Barcelona. During his early stint with the club Catalan between 2008 and 2016, Alves won the Spanish league title six times and the European Champions League title three times, along with many other prominent titles. “We have been waiting for you, Dani Alves,” Pumas wrote on Twitter. Alves helped Brazil win Olympic gold at the Tokyo Summer Games last year and, with his country, won the Copa America twice and the Confederations Cup twice. Alves, 39, has played more than 100 international matches with the Brazilian national team since his first appearance with the team in 2006 and was part of the squad that participated in the World Cup finals in the 2010 and 2014 editions. Alves arrived in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 2019 after spending 17 years in Europe, during which he played with Sevilla, Barcelona, ​​Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain, but terminated his contract with the team last September due to disputes over financial overdue odds. He returned to Barcelona in November and signed a contract with him until the end of the 2021-2022 season, to join his former teammate Xabi Hernandez, appointed Barcelona manager. Alves has participated in 14 league games with Barcelona, ​​who finished second at the end of last season, 13 points behind Real Madrid, who won the title. (Reuters)
