Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has moved to quash reports of Barcelona's interest in Ramires by calling the Brazilian midfielder 'priceless'.
According to the Daily Mail, Mourinho was questioned on the availability of Ramires at a pre-match press conference following reports that Barcelona and Real Madrid were planning January bids for the Chelsea star.
But the Stamford Bridge manager swiftly rubbished the speculation, insisting that Chelsea would not sell the Brazilian midfielder - no matter the price.
"No price," Mourinho said when asked by Ramires as a possible transfer target.
"There is no price for Ramires in the market. The interest doesn't annoy me but, on behalf of Chelsea, there's no price for a club wanting to buy Ramires.
"If it's true or not [Barcelona's interest], it's not important. There's no price."
The former-Benfica midfielder is under contract at Stamford Bridge until the summer of 2017, but was heavily linked with the La Liga giants following the arrival of Gerardo Martino at the Nou Camp.
The Blues travel to Upton Park to face West Ham United on Saturday evening, with Ramires expected to start alongside Frank Lampard.
He's featured in all 11 Premier League games for Chelsea this season, and has been one of the club's most consistent performers over the past 12 months.
