“São Paulo Futebol Clube announces that today an agreement was signed for the termination of the player Daniel Alves, who had a relationship with the club until December 2022”says the statement published by the tricolor club.
In fact, last Friday, the player was no longer seen on the premises of the ‘Tricolor del Morumbi’, which was supposed to be the date of his return after his international commitments and their respective vacations. Alves reported that he was either paid or did not play, and São Paulo responded by pushing him away of the dynamics of the first team.
The club recognizes the debt with the player, which is why they offered you an alternative to split the payment. However, the Brazilian’s attitude has not pleased the São Paulo board, which has broken any relationship with the player and ended up announcing that the negotiation of the payment of the debt passed to the legal and financial department Of the entity.
Immersed in a crisis
São Paulo is definitely in crisis. The board of the ‘Tricolor’ will have to mount a convincing story that goes far beyond the criticism of Dani Alves, who has decided to leave for defaults totaling 3 million euros.
They are 18 million Brazilian reais; what some suppose 3 million euros accumulated in defaults at the club over two years. Dani Alves armed himself with reasons and his tolerance for the club he has been a fan of since childhood due to paternal influence reached the limit. And in the face of no one and the little desire to reach a worthy agreement on the part of the directive that directs Julio Casares, the ex of the Barça planted and decided to leave the ‘Tricolor Paulista’, where you played in the last 24 months.
In short, São Paulo has a debt with the player who has caused Alves not to continue in the team despite the fact that he had a contract until December 2022. It all started with the player deciding not to attend the team’s training sessions, communicating through his agents that He would not return until he received what he was owed.
Next destination, Flamengo
Finally the Brazilian has decided to take another path but without leaving Brazil. Dani alves will become a Flamengo player, ensuring that the former Barça player will receive an offer in the next few days. “The Rio club has taken action and you have already contacted their representatives directly. The agreement is on the way “says the published information.
Staying in Brazil ensures you stay on Tite’s observation radar, given that his obsession is to be in the next Qatar World Cup in 2022. In addition, he could play again almost without parentheses, which would allow him to be in the call that his coach will give on Friday for the triple game in October. The South American season ends in December, so it would be fit for the winter window of European football.
