The agent of Atletico Mineiro midfielder Bernard has played down talk of interest from Chelsea.

Adriano Spadotto says talks are yet to open.

"There is a lot of speculation, that's normal as the player is in great form," Spadotto told Globo Esporte.

"Giuliano Bertolucci [a partner of Spadotto] and [Atletico Mineiro's] president Alexandre Kalil are those who deal with negotiations, but there is nothing right now, it's just a rumour."
