Dani Alves will return to Barcelona. The club are working on the details of his deal after learning that Xavi Hernandez wants him back at the club.
Club sources say the deal will be done after one more meeting with the defender, with both sides keen for agreement.
Alves left Sao Paulo a few months ago and had offered himself to Barcelona. He watched a game with Joan Laporta in the presidential box recently.
