"This Sunday Valencia CF have reached an agreement with CR Flamengo regarding the permanent transfer of goalkeeper Diego Alves to the Brazilian club", read a statement on La Liga club's website.

At the time of writing, Flamengo had yet to announce the transfer.

The Brazil worldwide, 32, had reportedly been a target for La Liga club Deportivo La Coruna, but he has agreed a return to his home country, with Globoesporte reporting a transfer fee of €300,000.

Diego Alves, the Brazilian goalkeeper who has saved more penalties than any other player in the history of La Liga, has ended his decade-long spell in Spain by leaving Valencia to join Brazilian giants Flamengo, the Spanish side said on Sunday.

Alves made 146 first-team appearances for Valencia after his 2011 move from Almeria. Facing his first penalty kick with Valencia, Alves rose to the occasion and denied Argentine superstar Lionel Messi, cementing Alves' reputation as a penalty saving specialist.

Last September, Alves entered the record books making a record-breaking seventeenth penalty save in Spain's top flight. Then, just this past April, he broke another record when he saved Cristiano Ronaldo's penalty for a total of six penalties saved in a season, conceding only three penalties over the course of the campaign.
