Alves is willing to return to Barca five years after leaving the club with whom he won 23 of the 43 titles he’s celebrated in his career.
The right-back joined the Blaugrana from Sevilla in 2008 and stood out at the Catalan side where he developed a great partnership with Lionel Messi on the right flank.
Esport2 says Alves has offered to return to Catalonia in January, when his contract with Sao Paulo is set to expire.
After departing Barcelona, Alves joined Juventus, where he played for one season in 2016/17, before moving to Paris Saint-Germain. The Brazilian full-back stayed in France for two years and then returned to his native country to sign for Sao Paulo.
