Ronaldinho's Agent Rules Out January Move to Chelsea

Ronaldinho's agent (and brother) Roberto de Assis has rejected recent reports that the Brazilian could be on his way to Chelsea in the January transfer window.

He is quoted as saying:

"It is completely out of the question that Ronaldinho will go in the middle of the season.

"There is no reason to think Ronaldinho's future is away from Barcelona.

"My brother has a contract with Barcelona until 2010 and he is interested in seeing it out and, if possible, extending it."

The Barcelona faithful are growing increasingly frustrated with Ronaldinho's performances so far this season and there had been suggestions that the Catalan side would look to offload him before his market value started to decrease.

Chelsea are thought to be willing to offer £50million to secure the services of Ronaldinho and it will be interesting to see whether Barcelona would reject such a figure come the end of this season, should he continue in his current poor vein of form.
