Gary Cahill admits he was upset by the insinuation he was motivated by greed during wage negotiations with Chelsea.
Cahill completed his £7million move to Stamford Bridge on Monday marking the end of a protracted transfer saga that was reportedly held up when Chelsea balked at his wage demands.
But the 26-year-old England defender insists his desire to join the Blues was founded on footballing reasons alone, and said: "It's disappointing when you see things in the press. You bite your lip because I didn't read one report that was correct. It was upsetting, but my family and the clubs knew the real situation."
