Dani Alves concerned about Barcelona’s summer shopping spree.
The Catalan giants have spent beyond €100m on transfers this summer but they need to balance the books to register these new signings.
Dani Alves left the club at the end of last season and joined Mexican side PUMAS on a one-year deal.
“The market is strange because of all these things that Barca has done,” said the 39-year-old.
“Barca have adapted to the market, which is crazy, as they have done the same as other clubs. They must not lose their philosophy, it is what has made them great.”
He later opened up about his departure after playing a critical role for Xavi’s side last season.
“I already knew the situation and that my contract was for six months,” added Alves.
“They spent a month without deciding, I wanted to have known about it before so I could say goodbye, hug people. I only had the opportunity to say ‘hello’, and not to say goodbye. I thank Barcelona that now I can say goodbye.”
