Reports in Italy have claimed that Serie A leaders Juventus are lining up a bid for the Romania international.
But Chivu has dismissed any link to the reigning champions and has reaffirmed that he has no plans to leave the Eternal City.
"It has never been my intention to quit Roma," stated Chivu.
"Leaving in January isn't a concrete possibility."
During the summer, Chivu pledged to stay with the Giallorossi in the face of reported interested from Internazionale.
Inter's city rivals Milan are also mooted as admirers of the centre half but Chivu is firmly focused on bringing success to Roma.
He added: "I'm here and I'm happy to be here.
"I don't know what the club would like to do but I'll engage myself until the end to allow the team to reach the highest possible place."
