Could Dani Alves return to Barça?

After announcing his departure from PSG, the return of veteran full-back Dani Alves could now be an option for Barcelona if Nelson Semedo does end up leaving Catalonia.

Dani Alves sent shockwaves around Europe as he announced his PSG departure this Sunday, meaning the 36 year-old is a free agent ahead of next season.

'RAC 1' have wasted no time in reporting that the Brazilian defender has offered himself back to former club Barcelona - a proposal that has not been rejected by the Spanish champions.

The full-back spent eight trophy-laden years at Barcelona, enjoying great success and creating goal after goal for Lionel Messi. However, the way in which he left the club three years ago leads many to think that his return is unlikely.

After not receiving a contract renewal because of his age in 2015, he activated a clause allowing him to leave for free in 2016 - a move that the Barcelona board did not appreciate. However, it seems like Josep Bartomeu and co., given their recent approach for Neymar, are in a forgiving mood.

Alves has never hidden his love for Barça - a love that would lead him to accept a lower salary in order to return, although his age will certainly count against him as Barcelona consider a move.

Only if Barcelona spend big on other signings and Nelson Semedo ends up leaving would Dani Alves be considered an option at right-back, as, for now, they currently have Sergi Roberto and Wagué to compete for the starting role with Semedo.
