Dani Alves revolutionized Barcelona with an unexpected turn. The right-back reached an agreement with the club until the end of the 2021-22 season, but will only be able to make his debut in January. Meanwhile, this Monday, the player visited the facilities of the Catalan entity and, of course, was seen with his teammates.

While the Brazilian is physically getting ready and preparing for the first contact with the fans, this Wednesday at the Camp Nou, a question arises: what number will he wear in the second stage dressed as a Barça player? According to the Sport newspaper, the 38-year-old lane has already chosen the number to wear on his back.

Dani Alves took possession of the jacket that has the ‘8 ′ stamped on it, one of the few that were left free for the current campaign and the one that Miralem Pjanic had. But, the election of the former Sao Paulo goes further and has a symbolism behind it, since Andrés Iniesta, a historical one of the Catalans, was the owner of that figure.

In fact, it is not the first time that the scoreboard has such details with former teammates. At the time, the player wore the '22' in honor of Eric Abidal, also the '6' for Xavi Hernández, his current coach, when he left for Qatar. There are other numbers, the '20', when he arrived at the Camp Nou, and the '2'.
