Speaking at his unveiling today, the 38-year-old said he re-joined Barcelona because he promised himself that he would definitely return to Camp Nou.

“The locker room right now is a lot better than I am here,” Alves said.

“They are very young players, with a lot of ambition and some of us that have already run a few more miles than them, we need to put our strengths together to transform Barca again.

“And I insist that we can only do this together. Alone, we can’t do anything. I am sure if we unite our forces together and if we are positive. Great things can only be achieved through hard work and positivity.

“It’s like the slogan of this club: it is more than a club because we are all Barca and Barca is all of us. So thank you so much.”

“I’m clear that I want to play the 2022 World Cup and anything can happen here. There are special things in this club and in this city... He added.

“I am back five years after I left and you have to value the chance to return to Barca. Words fail me.

“It is a special day for me. I have won a war because I promised myself that I would return.”

Alves had left Barcelona five years ago, ending his eight-year stay with the Catalonia club. He made 391 appearances across all competition, scored 21 goals and won atotal of 23 trophies ( 6 LaLiga titles, 4 Copa del Rey, 4 Spanish Cups, 3 Champions League, 3 Super Cups, 3 Club World Cups.

On his return, Alves will wear the number 8, jersey, a number formerly worn by club legend Andres Iniesta. 

This will be the fifth number he has worn as a barca player 20, 2, 22,6 and now 8.

Alves would only be available for the team's matches starting in January 2022 having agreed a deal until the end of the season.
