MEXICO CITY (AP) — When Dani Alves left Barcelona a few months ago, several teams were deemed possibilites for the next stop in his illustrious soccer career.

Alves, who with 44 titles is the most successful player in history, passed his medical tests Saturday and signed a contract to join the Mexico City team.
