Ex-Brazil forward João Alves has rejoined Corinthians for what will be his third spell at the club.
The Sao Paulo club confirmed the return of Alves on Wednesday night. The 33-year-old left Japanese club Nagoya Grampus on a deal that will keep him at the Arena Corinthians until 2023. He began his career at Corinthians and enjoyed spells at CSKA Moscow, Manchester City, Everton, and Atletico Mineiro, amongst others.
He won 20 caps for Brazil and his goals were vital in helping Corinthians to the Brazilian league title in 2017 and Atletico Mineiro to their only Copa Libertadores triumph in 2013.
