Alves: Flattered by Chelsea link
Dani Alves has insisted that he remains fully committed to Barcelona amid reports of interest from Chelsea.
The Blues have been linked with a move for the Brazilian full-back for some time and he is aware of the speculation.
Alves admits it is flattering to be on the radar of such a huge club and believes it would be a mistake to completely rule out anything.
However, he is under contract at Camp Nou until 2012 and fully intends to stay with the Catalan giants until at least that point.
"My situation is that now I have a deal with Barcelona and I want to stay here, regardless of the possible renewal of contract," he told globoesporte.co.
"But everything is still uncertain. Chelsea? It is a great club and to be on their agenda is a privilege.
"To have the interest of Chelsea is a great satisfaction because they are one of the most important clubs in world football today.
"But right now I'm happy at Barcelona and I intend to fulfil my contract here."
