Alves: Barca Didn't Have The Balls To Re-Sign Me

Former FC Barcelona right-back Dani Alves has claimed the Spanish giants did not have the guts to re-sign him when he offered his services to the club in 2017.

The Selecao defender left Barcelona in 2016 after eight incredible years with the club, but reportedly offered the Blaugrana the chance to add him to their playing roster again a year later.

Following a single season in Italy with Juventus, Alves joined Paris Saint-Germain in France, but not after seemingly going close to a Barcelona return.

Speaking recently about what happened back then, the 2019 Copa America winner explained his belief that his former club had too much pride to take him back to Spain, especially considering it was them, he claimed, who wanted to get rid of him.

"I offered myself to Barca to come back. I went to Juve to prove I was still at a good level," Alves told RAC 1.

"I wanted to return to Barca and they needed me, but they didn't have the balls to admit that they were wrong with me.

"If they had treated me as I thought I deserved, today I would still continue playing for Barca. I love this club."
