DANI ALVES re-joined Barcelona on Wednesday for just ONE EURO a month, keeping to his word of helping the club out in any way possible.

But if the 38-year-old doesn’t see out his contract – which expires next June – Barca will reportedly receive a rather large sum of money.

According to RAC 1, as reported by AS, the termination clause in Alves’ contract stipulates he would have to pay the club £84MILLION.

The clause is strange considering Alves has the lowest salary amongst the whole Barca squad.

Barca are hoping Alves‘ reunion with Xavi will inspire the current group of players to bring back the club’s glory days.

Alves spent eight years in Catalonia, winning SIX LaLiga titles and three Champions Leagues.

In a speech to his new team-mates, Alves vowed to learn off his juniors, but says he hopes they learn a thing or two from the ‘old one’.

As reported by Mundo Deportivo, he said: “It is a pleasure to be here after such a long time. To return here is an honour, a pleasure.

“To be able to share with you again. I come to learn from you, now the new world. But from the old one, I want to convey one thing: to know what it represents – this club and this shirt.

“I have been abroad and this is the best place to do great things, to live. You are here, value it because there is nothing better outside.

“It is a pleasure to be here with you. Come on to do great things because this club is made of this, of doing great things.”

Club president Joan Laporta has teased more Barca legends could follow Alves back to the Nou Camp, including LIONEL MESSI.

Laporta said: “I do not rule it out.

“It has happened with Dani. And I want to thank him because he has seen the situation of the club and wants to come to help.

“We are going to reverse this situation, but now he has made this effort. It has to be appreciated.

“Messi and Iniesta are spectacular, I cannot predict the future, as they are still playing, but they have made the club great, we always keep them in mind, although now they have contracts with others clubs and you have to respect that, but in life you never know.”
