Chelsea to double Daniel Alves wages

With Real Madrid in talks over the double signing of Michael Ballack and Arjen Robben, Chelsea will use the cash raised to bid for Brazilian Dani Alves.

The 24-year-old said: "You have to make the most of your opportunities - a footballer's career is very short. I would like that if an offer came in for me."

Chelsea are believed to be prepared to more than double Alves £35,000-a-week Sevilla wages.
