The agent of Atletico Mineiro midfielder Bernard says there has been no contact from Chelsea regarding his client.

Recent reports suggest that the Blues are showing considerable interest in the 20-year old but his representative Adriano Spadatto, who looks after David Luiz, Oscar and Lucas Piazon, says there is nothing in the rumours.

"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."

Bernard has been starring for Mineiro this season which prompted a call-up to the Brazil national team for whom he made his senior debut against Argentina on November 21.
