"We have never had contacts with Chelsea and we do not intend to reach an agreement," de Assis told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"My brother wants to choose his future with full awareness (of his options) and that's why he wants to respect Barcelona".

Ronaldinho has fallen out of favour at the Nou Camp this season, especially since his reputation was damaged by highly-publicised reports of his nocturnal party lifestyle.

Amid falling sales of his number 10 shirt, a series of substitute appearances and an apparent lack of form, the Spanish sports daily Marca reported he was on his way to Stamford Bridge.
