Xavi has spoken about the potential purchases of FC Barcelona, praising Daniel Alves while doing so.
Xavi Hernandez thinks Barcelona greatly miss Dani Alves and said he wouldn't have to think twice before welcoming him back to the club.
After eight seasons at Barca, Alves left for Juventus on a free transfer last summer, following Xavi, who had departed for Qatar the year before, out the Camp Nou exit door.
Despite nearly two years passing since his last game for the Blaugrana, Xavi, who came through La Masia and made 767 first-team appearances, remains something of a spokesman for the Catalan club
"Obviously I would bring back Dani Alves," Xavi said in an interview with Goal focusing on Barcelona's Champions League quarterfinal tie with Juventus.
"He decided to leave, but for me he is the best right-back in the world at the moment. Barca miss him a lot."
Alves gave Barca a glimpse of what they are missing on Tuesday, keeping Neymar on the fringes of the game as his new side comfortably beat his former employers 3-0 in Turin.
