Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard has told Chelsea that they have no chance of luring Ronaldinho to Stamford Bridge.
The 25-year-old Brazilian scored for Barceona in Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea that put his side in the quarter finals of the Champions League.
Rijkaard said: “Ronaldinho is very happy at Barcelona.
“He has so many friends and people who love him. Money is not the most important thing for him right now.”
Ronaldinho helped Barca win the 2005 Spanish title and he has an £85m buy-out clause in his contract.
Rijkaard added: “He wants to contribute to the things Barcelona can achieve.
“I was not surprised he was the difference against Chelsea.
“It was a special occasion with so much tension in the game and Ronnie’s reaction was wonderful.”
