Former Barcelona Dani Alves full-back is a currently a free agent and looking for a new club and has offered his services to the Catalan giants.

There’s speculation flying about that Alves wants to play for Barcelona again, and he’s spoken about the possibility of returning to the Camp Nou in a new interview.

“It would be taking advantage a bit to say now Barça need me. I always said I left because I saw things weren’t how I thought they should be. You don’t want to see everything that happened before my exit,” he said.

“I left saying that when Barça needed and wanted me I would return regardless of where I was. There’s too much love, respect and care I have for this home.

“If Barca think they need me all they need to do is call. I believe I can add things wherever I go but at Barca now especially with the youngsters they have.

“We were young once and we weren’t prepared to defend a responsibility as big as defending Barca is, no matter how good they are or how much they are spoken about. It’s all new. You need a mix of young and old to give balance and the chance to fight for great things.”

Alves turned 38 earlier this year but it’s thought he wants to keep on playing until the next World Cup in Qatar. A return to the Catalan club would be a big surprise but, then again, you wouldn’t really rule anything out when it comes to Barcelona these days.
