Philippe Mexes’ agent has dismissed speculation linking the Roma defender with a move to Chelsea.
The Blues are reportedly preparing a bid of £12m plus Ricardo Carvalho in exchange for Mexes.
However, the French defender’s representative, Olivier Joanneaux, doubts a move will go ahead.
“Chelsea? Personally at least, I do not think there is any truth to it,” Joanneaux told tuttomercatoweb.com.
“Is there any news in general regarding my client? Not as far as I know, or rather Roma want to keep the player who, in turn, is fully focused on the new season that is about to start.”
