Earlier it was reported that the defender wants to extend the agreement with the club until the end of next season.
Dani Alves, who played for the team from 2008 to 2016, returned to it in November 2021 (he was announced in the winter transfer window), signing an agreement until the end of the season.
But after playing one season, the player leaves the club.
It’s time for our goodbyes. It was 8 years that I devoted to this club, these flowers and this house… But, like everything in life, the years pass, the roads diverge, and stories are rewritten. They tried to fire me, but they couldn’t because you can’t imagine how hardy and tenacious I am.
Many more years passed before football and life decided to give me the opportunity to come back here to say goodbye. Thank you,” Alves wrote on social media.
