The agent of Bayern Munich striker Luca Toni has poured cold water on talk of a move to Chelsea.

Tullio Tinti insists Roma remain favourites to land the Italy international.

He said: "Broadly speaking we can say that if it is in Italy, he will go to Roma. Many situations are open to him in Europe, but his will is to come to Rome.

"The announcement of the agreement? Either the 1st or 2nd of January. "
