Barcelona are looking at the possibility of re-signing club legend Dani Alves in what would be a reunion with former team-mate turned manager Xavi. The Brazilian veteran full-back Alves won a host of major trophies during his first spell at the club after signing in 2008 before departing in 2016 to join Juventus. He is now a free agent, however, and according to journalist Nicolo Schira, discussions between Alves and Barcelona are ongoing over a potential return. It was reported that Nou Camp chiefs initially ruled out the move, but after Xavi was unveiled as the new Barcelona coach, Alves would serve as a leader under him. A meeting is scheduled to hold over the coming days to make a final decision on whether the 38-year-old veteran comes back for a second stint. He has confirmed that he has informed Barcelona about his willingness to play for them again, saying: ‘It would be taking advantage a bit to say now Barca need me. ‘I left saying that when Barca needed and wanted me I would return regardless of where I was. ‘There’s too much love, respect and care I have for this home. If Barca think they need me all they need to do is call. ‘I believe I can add things wherever I go but at Barca now especially with the youngsters they have. ‘We were young once and we weren’t prepared to defend a responsibility as big as defending Barca is, no matter how good they are or how much they are spoken about. It’s all new. ‘You need a mix of young and old to give balance and the chance to fight for great things.’ Laporta is also open to the return. He said: ‘Dani Alves helped the club in a number of ways – and he has offered us his help from a sporting point of view as well. ‘Like with (former captain Carles) Puyol, there is a very direct relationship. They can help if Xavi needs it.’ The post Barcelona ‘planning talks over re-signing club legend Dani Alves’five years after he left appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
