Dani Alves will no longer play for Sao Paulo

The Brazilian side has confirmed that Dani Alves will no longer be with them.

Former Barcelona right-back has walked out on his contract with

Sao Paulo

due to the club’s unpaid debts to the Brazilian legend, and the club has confirmed the player’s departure.

The player decided not to play for the club until they pay what they owe him after a ten-month delay in his payments, which means a £2m debt for the Brazilian side, and they have confirmed that since they can’t pay the 38-year-old right-back, they will no longer have him as a part of the club.

Director Carlos Belmonte said:

"Daniel Alves and Miranda were serving the Brazilian team and should have returned to start regular training for out next games [on Friday]. Miranda attended and trained normally, but Daniel Alves did not attend.

"We were then informed by his representatives that Daniel Alves will not return to Sao Paulo until the settlement of the debt that Sao Paulo has with the athlete. A debt that Sao Paulo recognizes and last week made a proposal seeking the right outcome, which was not accepted by the representatives.

"From our point of view, we have taken the decision that Daniel Alves will no longer be available to play for Sao Paulo. Sao Paulo is more important than all of us."


is now without a club, and since he wants to be a part of Brazil’s national team in the 2022 World Cup, he should be looking for a new team as soon as possible, so we will have to wait and see what will happen to the player in the future.
