Not only is it his last season with the Catalans, it’s his final one in Spain after he also claimed he’s headed for the English Premier League.
O Globo are credited with the quote, and that’s been backed up on Twitter by trusted Barcelona account @barcastuff.

Alves: "This will be my last season at Barcelona. Next year I move to England. I'm going to play where football was born." [o globo]
