Chelsea target Alvaro Pereira’s agent insists that the Porto defender is not contemplating a move away from Estadio do Dragao this summer amidst interest from many clubs.
The 26 year old Uruguayan, who is still enjoying his holidays back in South America, has been the subject of speculation recently with Chelsea reportedly interested in him. Chelsea are in desperate need of a right back after Jose Bosingwa was released earlier and Paolo Ferreira is also expected to follow him through the exit door. New Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo has closely studied Pereira’s exploits for the Primeira league side and is keen on signing him.
The defender has a release clause of £25m which the European champions aren’t willing to pay. The Stamford Bridge officials are likely to enter into a discussion with Porto soon over the possibility of a transfer.
Meanwhile, the player’s agent Alexander Savich spoke to Portuguese radio station Radio Renascence.
“Many clubs in England and Italy have asked about his situation, the value of his release clause and if Porto would be willing to negotiate, but we are not negotiating with any club,” he said.
“Alvaro is not thinking of leaving Porto because he has signed a contract. If there is an interesting offer, it will be Porto who decides.”
