It has been reported that Brazil legend Dani Alves has officially left Sao Paulo after he refused to play due to a dispute over money.
Last week, the Brazilian club confirmed that the veteran right-back would be leaving following a fallout between the player, his representatives and the board.
"We were told by his representatives that Daniel Alves will not come back to Sao Paulo until there is an adjustment in the financial debt that Sao Paulo has with the player," Sao Paulo football director Carlos Belmonte said in a statement, according to Goal.
"Sao Paulo recognises that debt and last week we made a proposal to try and right it. The proposal was not accepted by the player's representatives. Negotiations will continue.
"We have taken the decision and told this to coach Hernan Crespo that Dani Alves will no longer be at his disposal to play for Sao Paulo.
"We all work for this institution. Nobody is bigger than Sao Paulo Football Club."
According to football transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the 38-year-old has officially parted ways with the club, and is now a free agent.
What is the disagreement?
It is said that the former Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain defender and his agents believe he is owed about £1.37 million (R23 million) in image rights.
The 2007 and 2019 Copa America and 2020 Olympic gold winner made 95 appearances for Sao Paulo and contributed to 23 goals in the process, and also won the Campeonato Paulista with the side earlier this year.
