​Chelsea boss denies interest in Corinthians striker Pato

Chelsea have been linked with a January move for Corinthians striker Alexandre Pato but Blues boss Gus Hiddink dismissed the possibility, insisting he is content with the players he has.

"No [we don't want Pato]. No truth in it, we now have Diego, Remy and some youngsters who can fill up the gap, we are not in that at the moment," Hiddink said.

Hiddink also shot down any speculation Real Madrid are interested in luring Eden Hazard away from Chelsea before transfer bans come into effect for themselves and Atletico Madrid.

Hiddink said: "All big clubs are looking to big players, but both Madrid clubs have protested and I am not sure if they can use this transfer window or the next one, or if it will be postponed, but I don't expect much of this in this window."
