Spanish media claimed on Wednesday that a deal between Chelsea and Ronaldinho had been struck, with the 27-year-old reportedly being offered a 10million euro (£7.2million) annual salary at Stamford Bridge. However, Roberto de Assis, who is Ronaldinho´s brother as well as his agent, has denied that there is any such agreement.
"I have not read the newspapers, but it is a big surprise for me, because I have not spoken with anybody," De Assis said in El Mundo Deportivo. "I cannot receive offers. The only one who can receive them are Barcelona."
