Dani Alves spent his childhood in his hometown, the son of Domingos Alves da Silva, who was a farmer.

Right after that, he signed a contract with Spanish club Sevilla, adding a considerable amount to his net worth. In 2006, the team wanted to sell him to Liverpool for the price of $8 million, but they did not have that money, so Dani extended his contract with Sevilla until 2012.

He stayed with the team until June of 2016, and during that period, he appeared in the match against Juventus, winning its fifth European Cup at the 2015 UEFA Champions League Final.
