And incredibly the club legend will play for just one Euro per month to help ease the club’s financial worries.
Alves will start training at the struggling LaLiga side next week – but won’t be allowed to play until January 1.
A club statement read: “Barcelona and Dani Alves have reached an agreement in principle for the player to join the football first team for the remainder of the current season.
“The Brazilian will be joining training from next week but will not be able to play until January.”
Alves most-recently played for Sao Paulo in his native Brazil, but left in September.
The 119-cap Brazil international has been a free agent since and will now get down to work at Barca ahead of his second debut in January.

Alves offered his services to Barcelona last month after watching their tough start to the new campaign.
The selfless Brazilian said: “I’ve said that when Barca need me and want me, I would be at their disposal regardless of where I am.
“The affection, love and respect I have for this club is too much. If Barca think they need me, they just have to call me.
“I still think I can contribute anywhere, but more at Barca because of the number of young players that they have now.”
Alves played 391 times for Barcelona during his first spell after joining from Sevilla in 2008.
He left for Juventus eight years later, but not before he’d got his hands on SIX LaLiga titles and an impressive three Champions League crowns.
Since leaving the Catalan giants, Alves has played for Juve, Paris Saint-Germain and Sao Paulo.
The right-back also captained his country to Olympic gold at Tokyo 2020.
