Barcelona fullback Daniel Alves has welcomed interest from Chelsea. The Brazil right back has two-and-a-half years to run on his Nou Camp deal, but could improve his current £60,000 a week by moving to Chelsea or Manchester City.
"Chelsea are a great club," he told Globoesporte. "To be talked about and be in their plans is a privilege.
"At the moment I'm happy at Barcelona and intend to see out my contract here. Interest from them (Chelsea) gives me great satisfaction, knowing that they are one of the biggest teams in world football."
