“Italians, they get carried away quickly,” I was surprised to receive messages from friends this morning telling me about this rumour. That's far from being the case. I am a Chelsea player and I feel good here.
“I didn’t have the great end of the season that I did to leave like this, and not believe in my chances. I will fight for my place.
“But it's always good to get the attention of these kinds of clubs, it's flattering. But I remain focused on Chelsea. We will see what will happen in the coming weeks. But there is nothing signed or done. I prefer to deny it.”
