Brazilian club Sao Paulo is indebted to one of their players due to unpaid image rights according to the latest reports emanating from the Brazilian football scene. Dani Alves is an experienced fullback who plays for Sao Paulo in the Brazilian Serie A and he's being owed by the club according to football director Carlos Belmonte. Dani Alves is being owed to the tune of $15m in unpaid image rights for last year as revealed by the Sao Paulo football director Belmonte. The Sao Paulo official talked about Dani Alves and the unpaid image rights in a chat with Radio Bandeiranteslast week. According to Belmonte, Sao Paulo are hopeful that Dani Alves will stay at the club beyond his current contract despite the huge sum owed him by the Brazilian top flight club. Dani Alves has a contract that runs until next year at Sao Paulo and it remains to be seen if the player will extend his contract as suggested by Belmonte or call it quit with his professional career as a footballer or even move to a new club.
Sao Paulo are feeling the effects of Covid-19 financially and this explains the monies owed to Dani Alves by the club. Football director Belmonte is adamant that the club will eventually pay Dani Alves, who is still in contention for the Brazilian national team ahead of the FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar at the end of next year. Dani Alves is in his late thirties but he's not showing signs of someone in the final lap of his career due to his supreme fitness. He could be one of the oldest players to ever be a part of the Brazilian squad to the World Cup if he makes the 23-man team to be named by manager Tite at the end of next year. For now, Brazil need to qualify for the tournament and they are well on their way to achieving that as a result of their unblemished start to the qualifiers in the South American section.
