It is actually the right-back's 37th birthday today, but he is still going strong on the big stage, currently captaining Sao Paulo in his home nation.
Here, Sports Mole takes a closer look at the defender's career, detailing the honours that he has won over the last 18 years, both at club level and on the international stage.
Dani Alves (Bahia, Sevilla, Brazil, Barcelona, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Sao Paulo)
Alves has enjoyed a quite stunning career, particularly at club level. The defender's first trophy came at Bahia in 2002, before landing his first silverware on the European stage in 2006 when he lifted the UEFA Super Cup with Sevilla. The Brazilian also won two UEFA Cups during his time at the Estadio Ramon, in addition to lifting the Spanish Super Cup and Copa del Rey during an impressive spell.
Barca parted with an initial £23m to sign the South American in 2008, and Alves went on to enjoy a quite incredible period with the Spanish giants, including a treble in his first season. He won six La Liga titles, four Copas del Rey and three Champions League crowns during his time at Camp Nou, in addition to enjoying success in the Spanish Super Cup, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup.
It would perhaps be fair to say that Alves was fortunate to be at Barca during a time where the Catalan outfit had arguably the best club team in the history of football. The defender was a huge part of their success, though, making 391 appearances, contributing 21 goals and 100 assists in the process.
Alves certainly left Camp Nou on a high note as he landed the La Liga title and Copa del Rey in his final season at the club, ultimately joining Italian champions Juve for the 2016-17 campaign.
The right-back won Serie A and the Coppa Italia during his only season with the Old Lady before leaving for PSG, where his trophy cabinet became even more bloated with more domestic success.
Alves, who is the second most-decorated defender in European competition with nine European medals, only spent two seasons with the French giants but won six trophies, including successive Ligue 1 titles before returning to Brazil with Sao Paulo, where he is yet to lift any silverware.
Perhaps the biggest disappointment in his career has been the absence of a World Cup medal; he has won four trophies for Brazil, including the Copa America in both 2007 and 2019. Alves has also landed two FIFA Confederation Cups but could not help his national side triumph at the World Cup in either 2010 or 2014.
Alves missed the 2018 World Cup through injury, but he has captained the Selecao in 11 of their last 14 internationals, including the recent friendlies against Senegal and Nigeria.
Widely regarded as one of the most effective attacking right-backs in recent memory, Alves has scored 53 times and contributed 157 assists in 751 appearances at club level since leaving Bahia in 2002. He has registered eight goals and 19 assists in 118 games for his national side, meanwhile, and it would be fair to say that the Bahia-born defender has left a serious mark on the sport.
