The money that Dani Alves has in his bank accounts, according to his lawyer

The footballer Dani Alves is still unable to post the bail of one million euros that the Barcelona Court imposed on him last Wednesday to be provisionally released, until the appeals against the sentence that condemned him to four and a half years in prison are resolved. for raping a young woman in a Barcelona nightclub.

The defense of the Brazilian, who returned to sleep in the Brians 2 prison this weekend, continues working to collect the high amount. However, the convicted man is encountering more difficulties in raising bail than expected.

And the fact is that in addition to the high amount imposed as bail, one of the highest recorded in Spanish courts, and the complexity of the procedures to move such an amount of money, a third factor is added, the reputational damage that can be suppose to financially support a person convicted of rape.

Initially, Alves turned to Neymar's family, who at the time publicly boasted of having helped him pay the 150,000 euros bail to cover eventual compensation for the victim. However, the family of the current Al-Hilal Saudi player clarified that he was not going to pay the million euros.

"I hope that Daniel finds with his own family all the answers he is looking for. For us, for my family, the matter is over," Neymar's father said in a statement.

The footballer's financial solvency has evaporated as a result of his arrest, the convicted man's defense maintains. His lawyer, Inés Guardiola, recalls that he has terminated both his contract with the Pumas club in Mexico, where he played, and his sponsorship agreements with different brands that he represented.

Furthermore, Alves is waiting for the Treasury to return a large amount of money for the litigation he has won against the Tax Agency, a sum that would allow him to pay the bail.

Specifically, Guardiola claims the footballer has two bank accounts at La Caixa, one with no balance and another with 51,000 euros. In another account in a Brazilian bank, he would have a negative balance of 20,000 euros. And then he would have what the Treasury owes him: 645,000 euros.
