Barcelona legend Dani Alves has sent a shock message to his former club and has made it clear he would be happy to play for the Catalan giants once again after leaving Brazilian side Sao Paulo.

Alves told Diario Sport’s Joaquim Piera that he still thinks he can do a job for Barcelona and that the club only needs to pick up the phone if they want to bring him back to the Camp Nou.

“If Barça thinks they need me, they just have to call me,” he said. “I still think that I can contribute anywhere, but more at Barça because of the number of young people it has now.”

The full-back turned 38 in May, which makes a move unlikely even though he’s a free agent, but Alves argued that his experience could be good for Ronald Koeman’s team which is packed full of youngsters such as Pedri, Ansu Fati, Gavi, and Sergino Dest.

“In every place I have been, I have always thought that the perfect mix is ??the experience with youth,” he added. “There will come a time when youth will mature and the older ones will leave.”

Bringing Alves back to Barcelona would certainly be a big surprise, but the Brazilian has made it clear he’s looking for a new club where he can add to his extensive trophy cabinet.
