Dani Alves Barcelona release clause is 100million times more than his salary

Dani Alves completed a sensational return to Barcelona this week, shortly after former star Xavi Hernandez returned to the Nou Camp to replace Ronald Koeman as manager.

Barcelona are in a transitional phase after financial difficulties meant that a whole host of stars had to leave over the summer, including one Lionel Messi, who has unsurprisingly proved irreplaceable.

However, the former player reunion is well underway, as Xavi's first deal was to see former teammate Alves return to the club, as they look to restore Barcelona to their former glory.

The move isn't influenced by finances either, as Alves will be the lowest professionally paid player in Europe, and by quite a margin at that.

The 38-year-old has a release clause of €100m as Barcelona continue to slap high price tags on stars, but Alves will be pocketing just €1-a-week for his services at the club.

Yes that's just one Euro, meaning that Alves' release clause is 100 million times his weekly wage, as the player is essentially playing for free which is the lowest that the club could offer in order to comply with La Liga rules.

Xavi is desperate to revamp his squad and get the club back to winning ways, and Alves could help bring the winning mentality and identity that was shared at the Nou Camp when he played alongside new manager Xavi.

Although football is usually driven by money nowadays, Alves has restored some genuine love and passion within the game, and told Barcelona fans at his unveiling that he was just here to be positive.

Alves said: "It's time to change and you need to be positive. That's my mission here. Long live Barca! Long Live Catalonia! And long live the mother that gave birth to you all!"

The Brazilian spent eight successful years at Barcelona before leaving the club in 2016, but Alves is relishing his return at the age of 38, with passion to complete his 'mission' back at the club he adores.
