Dani Alves accepts lowest salary in Barcelona's first team squad
The right-back has agreed to earn less than everyone else in the Barcelona squad, according to Sport. But bonuses for objectives make it worthwhile.
Dani Alves always dreamed about returning to Barcelona and he has be willing to make sacrifices to see it happen. According to Sport, the Brazilian right-back has accepted the lowest fixed salary out of all of the players in the first team squad. The defender is fully aware of the club's delicate financial situation and he will be earning far less than he did during his first spell at Camp Nou. However, he could make up the shortfall if Barça enjoy a productive season as objective-based bonuses included in his contract are generous if he is able to play a key role.

Alves has also been reasonable in terms of the length of his contract. He had originally hoped to sign for one natural year, which would take him right up to next year's World Cup finals in Qatar, but in the end, he agreed a contract up to the end of June.
Dani Alves isn't the only member of the current squad who has agreed to take a pay cut to join Barcelona this season. Eric Garcia, Memphis Depay and Kun Agüero all accepted proposals from Barça in which they would be arning less than at their previous clubs but with attractive add-ons.
