Barcelona sporting director Txiki Begiristain remains "totally convinced" Ronaldinho will not leave for Chelsea or any other club as rumours persist they are keen to sign Blues target Daniel Alves from Sevilla.

Begiristain shrugged off rumours Chelsea´s billionaire owner Roman Abramovich held two meetings with Ronaldinho´s brother and adviser in a bid to persuade the Barcelona star to join the Blues in the Barclays Premier League.

Begiristain told Catalunya Radio: "We do not want to sell him. Ronaldinho is our player and I am totally convinced that he will remain at the club. In this aspect the decision of Barcelona is clear. It is normal that any of the big clubs in the world desire Ronaldinho, but he has signed a deal with us."
