Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has ruled out a move for Portugal winger Simao Sabrosa.
The Blues and Liverpool have been continually linked with the Benfica star after he impressed last season in the UEFA Champions League.
Benfica have rejected all overtures for their captain and insist it will take a massive offer for them to consider selling the former Barcelona man,
Mourinho has previously admitted he is an admirer of Simao, but admits he has no plans to sign him as there is no room in his star-studded team at Stamford Bridge.
"Simao does not have a place at Chelsea," Mourinho told Portuguese daily O Jogo.
"Simao does not enter my plans but not because of a lack of quality."
