Official: Dani Alves' New Club Revealed

With Dani Alves, the most decorated footballer in history, having been linked with a move to the Premier League and a return to FC Barcelona, the Brazil captain's next club has now finally been revealed.

Stars Who Could Have Played For Different Countries

Brazilian club Sao Paulo have announced the signing of the 36-year-old on a free deal, after his contract with Paris Saint-Germain came to an end last month.

Alves has joined the club on a three-year deal, with the former Barca and Juventus right-back saying he "could have chosen anywhere to play, but I chose to return to Brazil", according to ESPN.

Club president Carlos Augusto de Barros e Silva was delighted to welcome Alves to Sao Paulo.

"Daniel Alves is the embodiment of what this management envisions for Sao Paulo," he said.  

"One of the leading players in the world and recognised for his immense professionalism, his fierce determination and his endless thirst for titles and victories.

"He is also a socially engaged citizen, and passionate about our country. Sao Paulo, therefore, wins on every possible front.

"One day, I told Daniel that he would come to play at Sao Paulo, his heart club. Today I have the immense joy and pride to have kept that promise."

Alves has won 40 senior trophies for club and country, making him the most successful footballer in the world.
