Without a club since his departure from Sao Paulo, Daniel Alves would not be against bringing his experience to Barça.
Dani Alves has said he will return to FC Barcelona without hesitation. He told the club he would be ready to answer the call if he came knocking on his door.
The Brazil international, who spent eight successful seasons at Camp Nou, is currently without a club after terminating his contract with Sao Paulo last month due to a rights dispute.
Barca are currently in the middle of the La Liga table after a slow start to the campaign – but Alves believes he can help the young Blaugrana if he makes a return to Catalonia.

What was said?
“It would seem very opportunistic to say that Barca need me now”, the veteran defender, who left in 2016, told Sport. “I always said I left because I saw things were not as I thought they should be.
“You never want to see all that [a] ended up happening since i left. I have said that when Barca need me and want me, I will be there for them no matter where I am. The affection, love and respect I have for this club is too important. “
“If Barca think they need me they just have to call me. I still think I can contribute anywhere but more at Barca because of the number of young players they have now. “
