Sevilla fullback Daniel Alves has declared he's ready to leave in the summer.

Chelsea and Tottenham have been linked with the Brazil international, who was also watched by Manchester United chief scout Martin Ferguson last month.

Alves remains upset at missing out on a move to Chelsea last August and said: "I think it will be difficult for that train last year to come round again. But I'm sure there'll be other trains passing that will be good for me.

"The president has his opinion and I have mine. I believe the price he demanded was too much for a wing-back. The president has always said no player is essential."
