Chelsea chief Kenyon admits Barcelona contact

Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon met Barcelona president Joan Laporta on Thursday, but insists a move for Ronaldinho was not on the agenda.

Kenyon said Chelsea will not make any last-minute signings before the transfer window closes on Friday night.

The London club have been linked with Ronaldinho but Kenyon dismissed that report - as well as claims of a swap deal involving Shaun Wright-Phillips and Tottenham's Jermaine Defoe, and that Jose Mourinho wanted to sign Porto winger Ricardo Quaresma.

Kenyon, in Monaco ahead of the Champions League draw, said: "We are 24 hours away and it's fair to say that our plans are complete."

Asked if Laporta might be keen to avoid him, he replied: "Not at all - in fact I've just had a coffee with him!"
