Giuliano Bertolucci, agent of Chelsea's Ramires and David Luiz, has denied reports that they will join former boss Rafael Benitez at Napoli next season.

This will come as good news to many Chelsea fans after reports suggested that the Brazilian defender may be lured to the Serie A outfit this summer.

Bertolucci told Sky Sports: "It's very unlikely that David Luiz and Ramires can go to Napoli because Chelsea don't want to lose them, they are two key players."

The agent of the Brazilian duo also claims that there has been no contact from Barcelona for the 26-year-old. The rumour mill went wild last season claiming that Barcelona may bid £35million for Luiz.

"Were Barcelona interested in David Luiz? There was something last summer, but now we have not had any contact with them," Bertolucci insisted.

It looks like David Luiz may remain a Chelsea player for the next season. Is this good news? Do you think Jose Mourinho should build his team around the versatile former Benfica star or would you rather see the Blues cash in?
