Brazilian star Dani Alves has seemingly received more bad news while locked up in a prison in Spain.
The 39-year-old was arrested in January after he allegedly raped a woman in the bathroom of Barcelona nightclub in December last year.
He has since been denied bail on two occasions, with the court fearing that the player could flee the country if he is released pending a trial.

According to the Daily Mail, his wife Joana Sanz now appears to be leaving the former Juventus star after she published an emotional handwritten letter suggesting that it was now time for her to begin a new chapter.
"I would love for the lines written here to be about love and happiness, but it is not the case," the Spanish model said. "These have been horrible months, not the hardest of my life, because I have faced many storms, but very dark and painful.
"The feeling of abandonment and loneliness knocks on my door again. Thousands of 'why's' with no answer. I chose as a life partner a person who in my eyes was perfect.
"He was always there when I needed him the most, he always supported me in everything, he always pushed me to grow, always affectionate, attentive... It's so hard for me to accept that this person could break me into a thousand pieces.
"I think it's going to take me years to erase from my memory his way of looking at me, that way he had of looking at me as if I were the most incredible thing in the world and damn, yes, I'm incredible.
"I am incredible because I am hardworking, independent, intelligent, thoughtful, affectionate, funny, faithful and humane, and so human that despite the damage he has caused me, I am still here by his side.
"I continue and will continue to be, but in another way.
"I love him and I will always love him. Whoever says you forget love is either deceiving themselves or did not truly love. But I love myself, I respect myself and I value myself much more."
