Barcelona to re-sign Dani Alves at age of 38

Barcelona have reached an agreement in principle to re-sign 38-year-old defender Dani Alves – six years after he left the Nou Camp for Juventus.

Alves, who has won nine top-flight titles with Barca, Juve and Paris St-Germain, is the first signing since Xavi took charge earlier this month.

The Brazil international spent eight years at Barcelona between 2008 and 2016 winning La Liga six times.

Alves won three Champions League titles and the Copa del Rey four times there.
