Chelsea are on the brink of finally completing the signing of Sevilla´s Daniel Alves, with Arjen Robben set to quit Stamford Bridge for Real Madrid.

Reports in Spain on Tuesday night were suggesting the Alves deal was imminent after he was left out of Sevilla´s squad for the Champions League third qualifying round first-leg tie against AEK Athens.

The 24-year-old is keen to join the Blues, and boss Juande Ramos describes the player as a very important part of his team, saying: "It´s true that Daniel has an important role in this team, especially in our attacking play. It´s also true that two teams like Madrid and Chelsea are trying to acquire his services."
