There has been another setback for Dani Alves despite his lawyer Cristóbal Martell’s contining efforts to discredit the version of the victim of the alleged sexual assault that took place on December 30 at the Sutton nightclub in Barcelona.

After Liga MX side Pumas UNAM rescinded the defender’s contract, the club are now asking Alves for million-dollar compensation for having violated the terms of conduct that appeared in his contract signed in July 2022, as reported by the Brazilian website UOL, who have had access to the email that the Mexican team has sent to the player.
