Silvio Berlusconi insists there is no truth in fresh speculation linking Andrea Pirlo with a move to Chelsea.
The Italy international has been a reported target for the Blues all summer, although no official approach has yet been made.
The arrival of former Rossoneri boss Carlo Ancelotti at Stamford Bridge has fuelled the rumours, with the Italian tactician known to be an admirer of Pirlo's talents.
Both the player and Milan have been quick to distance themselves from the speculation, but the issue refuses to go away
Reports in Italy and England on Saturday claimed Pirlo is poised to hand in a transfer request in order to secure a move to Chelsea, but Milan supremo Berlusconi insists he has been given no indication that such an occurrence is forthcoming.
"They are all stories, there's no truth at all," he said.
"I don't know anything, I haven't spoken with (general manager, Adriano) Galliani.
"I only found this out from journalists and I am surprised."
