Playing as an attack-minded right-back, Alves formed part of Barcelona’s greatest era from 2008 to 2016. He helped it win 23 titles, including three Champions League trophies and six Spanish leagues. He scored 23 goals in 391 games for Barcelona before he left to play for Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and then São Paulo.

He will now play for former teammate Xavi Hernández, who also returned to the club last week as its coach. Alves will join American Sergiño Dest, Óscar Mingueza, and Sergi Roberto as players who can fill the right back position for Barcelona.

All-time record for trophies:

Alves won 23 titles at FC Barcelona: 6 Ligas, 4 Copas del Rey, 3 Champions League, 3 Club World Cups, 3 Spanish Super Cups and 4 European Super Cups.

He also won titles at Juventus (2), Paris Saint-Germain (6) and São Paulo (1) before returning to Catalonia.

Adding the various honours he won with EC Bahia (3), Sevilla (5) and Brazil (6), his total haul of 46 titles is regarded as the most ever won by a senior footballer.
