Dani Alves is leaving Barcelona for the second time, just five months after returning to the Spanish club that he helped win 23 trophies.

From 2008 until 2016, the 39-year-old Alves represented Barcelona, winning the Champions League three times and six Spanish titles among other honors. As a free agent, he began a second term at Barcelona in January, on a contract that was set to expire this summer.

Last season, Alves made 17 appearances and scored one goal, although Barcelona did not win the league. He concluded his Barcelona career with 408 appearances, second only to Lionel Messi among non-Spaniards.

“I would like to thank all the coaching staff for the opportunity they gave me to give something back to this club and wear this marvelous shirt again,” Alves wrote on Instagram. “I hope you don’t miss my craziness and daily dose of happiness too much.”

Alves has also played for Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Sevilla. He did not say what his future plans are. He has said he hopes to make Brazil’s squad for the World Cup in Qatar.
