Barcelona fullback Alves denies Chelsea talk

Barcelona fullback Daniel Alves has denied reports he's keen on a move to England.

The Brazil international has been a key figure in Barca's impressive campaign since moving from Sevilla last summer.

His performances have reportedly again caught the attention of Chelsea, who tried to buy him in 2007, and the Blues have been linked with an offer of around 27 million euros.

However, Alves' media representatives released a statement claiming the 25-year-old right-back intends to see out the remainder of his contract at the Nou Camp.

"Daniel Alves knows about the interest of the London club today through the article in the ... tabloid," the statement added.

"A denial is important in order to not give the wrong impression on this matter."

Alves has a four-year contract at Barca which includes a release clause of 90 million euros.
