Dani Alves' agent insists there have no been approaches from Premier League clubs for his client.

Barca defender yet to be contacted by Premier League admirers

Dani Alves' agent insists there have no been approaches from Premier League clubs for his client. The Barcelona defender is reported to have attracted interest from England, with Chelsea and Manchester City strongly linked with a move. With the Brazilian's contract at Camp Nou set to expire in 2012, and with extension talks having stalled, it has been suggested that Barca could look to cash in. It was understood that if a deal was to be done, then Alves would be on his way to the Premier League. That may still prove to be the case, but for now the 27-year-old's representative claims no discussions have been held. "No English clubs have contacted me to present an offer," Joaquin Macanas told Sport. "Reports of interest from Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City are not true."
