River Plate chief insists no offer has arrived from Chelsea

Diaz said: “I have been asked what I think about an ?8.5m offer presented by Chelsea, but I have no information about this and I haven’t even heard that they intend to make a bid.

“River Plate want to keep the player at least until June 2007, this is our intention and at the time being we have not received offers from any club. If we should receive an official request which could be important for the club, then we will sit down at a table and discuss it. However, I do not want to make any comments until there is something certain to talk about.”
