Spanish media had reported that a woman had accused Alves of touching her beneath her underwear without her consent when she was with friends at a nightclub in late December 2022.

Police in Barcelona has detained Brazilian international Dani Alves and taken him to court for questioning after he was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in a local nightclub..

The footballer acknowledged that the alleged sex crime took place late last month at the famous city nightclub Sutton.

Alves will now go before a judge, who will decide on the charges.

The 39-year-old Alves is one of football's most successful players, winning major titles with several elite clubs, including Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain over his long career. He currently plays with Mexican club Pumas.

According to the reports, he would also be taken into custody and fingerprinted as part of standard procedure before being questioned and brought before the court overseeing the alleged sex assault for additional questioning.

The defender was a key part of Barcelona's golden years playing between 2008-2016 on the team's right flank with Lionel Messi. He won the Champions League three times with the Catalan club, which he briefly rejoined last season.

This week, it became known that Alves had flown to Spain from Mexico with the club’s approval after the mother of his Tenerife-born model wife Joana Sanz passed away.

“A man accused of an indecent assault at a nightclub in Barcelona late last year has been arrested,’ a spokesman for the local Mossos D’Esquadra confirmed.

“He has now been taken to court after making a statement to police. It will be up to the court now to decide what measures to take.”
