Schalke director of sport Horst Heldt has ruled out making a summer move for Barcelona ace Dani Alves.
Reports have suggested recently that Schalke were keen on signing the Brazil international.
“I usually don’t do this, but this time there is such a completely false representation of our transfer policy in public,” Heldt told his club’s official website.
“Dani Alves is a world-class footballer, there is no doubt about that.
“But we have not considered this player, not even theoretically.
“These reports are just total nonsense.
“We have never made an offer to his club, nor have we had any contact with the player or his agent in any form, and he has not been offered to us either.”
