Daniel Alves heartbroken over failed Chelsea move

Daniel Alves admits he is heartbroken after being priced out of a move to Chelsea by Sevilla this week.

Alves stormed: "It is the opportunity of a lifetime and I want to leave. I am not going to let this chance pass.

"I am disappointed by the way I have been treated. In the four-and-a half years that I have been here I have given everything and I want more respect.

"We had an agreement that if an offer came in that was above the asking price or a huge amount, then they would properly think about.

"The offer is a lot and yet the club refused it. I feel disappointed the offer of 36m euros was accepted at first and then later it was turned down. I thought that it would be accepted on Monday, but it wasn't.

"I do not want to talk badly of the club, because this is a matter between myself and the president.

"The fans understand what is going on because nobody in their right mind would not accept an offer that would see their salary doubled."
