Dani Alves has found a new club less than a month after leaving Barcelona when his contract expired at Camp Nou. According to an official club statement issued early Friday morning, the 39-year-old Brazilian is on his way to Mexico City after joining Pumas.
The experienced right-back is said to have agreed to a one-year contract with Pumas that will last until the end of June 2023. Despite his age, Alves is keen to keep fighting at a high level. His objective is to make Tite’s squad for the Brazilian national team’s trip to the World Cup in Qatar later this year.
Pumas, based in Mexico City, are one of the most popular clubs in the Latin American country. They finished eleventh in the Liga MX last season and will hope that signing a player as experienced as Alves will take them to the next level. Alves has enjoyed a decorated career that’s seen him represent Bahia, Sevilla, Barcelona (twice), Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Sao Paulo.
