Carlo Ancelotti has denied Chelsea have held discussions with the owner of Udinese about winger Alexis Sanchez.
Udinese owner Giampaolo Pozzo claimed earlier this week that he had held talks with the Blues concerning the 22-year-old Chile international striker.
He also claimed he quoted the Stamford Bridge outfit €30m (£25.1m) for Sanchez, although he could want more.
But Ancelotti has denied talks with Pozzo.
The Blues boss said: "It's not true that we've spoken with the owner of Udinese.
"I don't like to speak about this because it's confidential."
