Mourinho confirms Chelsea bid for Alves

Jose Mourinho has confirmed claims by Daniel Alves's agent that the Brazilian is nearing a move to Stamford Bridge.

The Portuguese confirmed Chelsea are still in the hunt for the Sevilla right-back after Chelsea's 2-1 victory over Reading at the Madejski stadium last night.

But he insisted a deal is yet to be concluded.

Mourinho said: 'We are trying to buy him but the situation is not done at this moment. We will see what happens.'

Alves' agent Geronimo Suarez revealed yesterday that he is '80-90% confident' a deal can be struck between the two clubs.

Reports in Spain suggested the two clubs had reached agreement over a £24.5million switch to Stamford Bridge but the London club issued a statement denying this.

The 24-year-old was left out of Sevilla's squad for their Champions League qualifier against AEK Athens last night, fuelling speculation his career with the UEFA Cup holders is about to come to an end.

Suarez said: 'I am confident in the Chelsea directors, I understand Chelsea is not easy to be driven but let's say at least we are 80-90% confident that we can close the agreement.'

Real Madrid have also been linked with the Brazil international but Suarez has reiterated Alves' declaration that it is Mourinho's side he wishes to join.

'He is determined to go there (Chelsea),' Suarez said, speaking in an interview with BBC Radio Five Live.

'He has spoken in these terms a lot of times, he has said to the press here in Seville that he is 100% determined to go Chelsea.

'He asked for the Seville club to close the agreement with Chelsea as soon as possible. These are his own words.'

He added: 'We expected yesterday afternoon to be the perfect day to close the agreement but it didn't arrive so it may be two or three days or a maximum of one week before both clubs must find a solution.

'We cannot continue in this way for a long time because the player is suffering a lot here.

'Now we are in a complicated moment between the clubs because both are determined to close a deal, but it is not easy to finalise in this case. We will need more time, more patience and more confidence in the clubs.

'We are far enough (apart) to not be close and allow the deal, but close enough to be confident that finally the clubs will be able to reach an agreement for the player.'

Chelsea's statement on the matter read: 'Contrary to reports from Spain, Chelsea Football Club has not reached an agreement for the transfer of Daniel Alves from Sevilla.

'Chelsea FC has confirmed its interest in the player to the club but as yet there is no agreement.'
