£20m Alves 'flattered' by Chelsea interest

August 3, 2007

Brazil full-back Daniel Alves has admitted he is interested in a potential move to Chelsea.

The 24-year-old has been linked with a £20million switch from Sevilla to Stamford Bridge.

Alves claims he is happy to stay with the Spanish club but would have to give consideration to any good offers.

He said: 'I am flattered that Chelsea is interested in me. The career of a footballer is very short and it's necessary to take advantage of all the opportunities that come your way.

'I always said that I wanted to leave Sevilla by the front door, especially after the great season we've had. It's not that I want to leave, but I cannot turn down the opportunities that I have.'
