Barcelona have dismissed speculation linking Chelsea with an audacious move for Brazilian star Ronaldinho.

Sport director Txiki Berguiristain shrugged off rumours that 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.

Berguiristain 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."
