Giorgio Chiellini's agent has played down speculation linking the Juventus defender with Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
The commanding centre-half has been linked with a host of clubs after assured performances at the heart of the Serie A side's defence.
Bayern Munich are reported to be willing to bid £18.5m for the Italy international but Juve are believed to be ready to offer a new bumper deal to retain his services.
While his agent Davide Lippi says Chiellini is flattered to be linked to top clubs, the 25-year-old does not want to leave his current side, where he is contracted until June 2013.
Lippi told Tuttosport: "We are very happy about the interest of big clubs such as Real Madrid or perhaps Bayern Munich, but Giorgio (Chiellini) does not want to leave Juventus."
