Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini has no interest in a move away from Turin according to the player's brother.
Chiellini was bought by Juventus for 6.5million Euros in the summer of 2004 from Livorno before being immediately sold in a co-ownership deal with Fiorentina for 3.5million Euros.
After an impressive first season in Serie A Juventus re-called the defender for the start of the 2005/06 season paying another 4.3million Euros to regain full ownership.
If there was any doubt over his ability when he initially signed for Juve then there is none now with Chiellini stacking up 93 league appearances for the club in just over three seasons.
After establishing himself as a rock at the heart of Claudio Ranieri's defence the 24-year-old has been linked with a switch to the Premier League.
"Giorgio signed a contract renewal in July and even though I am not his agent I can tell you there is a real difference between talking about a deal and signing one," Chiellini's brother Claudio told Goal.com.
"I think this talk of him leaving is just pure fantasy. However if a club like Manchester City arrived at the end of the season and offered mega money, maybe it would be different.
"But it's all down to Juventus. I don't think the Bianconeri want to sell one of the best defenders in the world."
