Alves, 38, departed Barcelona back in 2016 in favour of a move to Juventus.
However, after plying his trade in Turin, as well as Paris with PSG, followed by his most recent spell with Brazilian side Sao Paulo, Alves is now set to return to the La Liga.
This news comes just days after former midfielder Xavi was unveiled as the Catalan side’s new manager following the recent departure of Ronald Koeman.
Clearly looking to add some experience to his ranks, Xavi is set for a stunning reunion with his former teammate.
Alves’ first spell with Barcelona, which saw him turn out for the Spanish giants a whopping 391 times from 2008 to 2016, resulted in the attacking full-back lifting 23 major trophies, including three Champions League titles.
The veteran defender’s impending return to Spain, which is subject to La Liga’s approval, will now see him become the club’s older player on a one-year deal.
