Dani Alves would sign within one more year
The signing of Dani Alves with FC Barcelona has lived up to expectations. Except by his expulsion in front of Athletic de Madrid (4-2 victory), the side showed an exceptional state of form despite his experience, showing that its quality follows intact. Thus, the club has already started contacts to extend his agreement for one more season, until June 2023. By then, the Brazilian will be 40 years old and, after passing the Catar World Cup, will surely consider his retirement professional .
The renewal of Alves includes a salary improvement, since that of Juazeiro only earns 155,000 euros a year, the lowest salary allowed by LaLiga, His signing was completed in November and the experienced defender returned with Xavi Hernández, although his incorporation into the staff had to wait until January 1, 2022, as established by the internal regulations of the competition. Dani Wanted to return to Catalonia at all costs, but without the guarantee of the egarense technician, there would be succedido.
In this sense, Xavi fully trusts the Brazilian, with the one who shared the locker room between 2009 and 2015. Although the side has not been registered in the Europe League squad, in La Liga himself is making headlines, having played a total of four games since his return, with 1 goal and 2 assists. He was also titled in the Copa del Rey until the blaugrana eliminated against Athletic de Bilbao (3-2) and in the Spanish Supercopa against Real Madrid (3-2 defeat) in Arabia. Despite Sergiño Dest’s good time, the master of Terrassa follows Dani’s bets.
Facing the 2022-23, Barça intends to strengthen the right side with the arrival of César Azpilicuetathe one who still does not define his future in Chelsea. Also it could happen ‘to cost zero’ Noussair Mazraoui, Ajax defender. His signing is directly linked to that of Erling Haaland, as Borussia Dortmund would demand his arrival in Germany if the Norwegian finally settles down to go to Catalonia. Regardless of these moves, Alves had to stay and, as always, give everything to help the team when they needed it.
The future of Dest and Mingueza, an incógnita
Sergiño Shone in the Europa League playoffs against Napoli, but his future continues to be uncertain. The American seemed to be on the way out in January, but today his situation has changed and no longer has the transferable poster linked. However, the arrivals of Azpilicueta and Mazraoui, combined with the renewal of Alves, could force him to change air in summer. Óscar Mingueza, for his part, has more complicated his continuity. That of Santa Perpetua de Moguda cannot be explained by the master of Terrassa and could be sold in Valencia in July.
