Ancelotti: Chelsea not chasing Neymar

Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti is flattered that Neymar would like a move to Stamford Bridge but the Blues boss insists the Brazilian starlet is not currently on the club's shopping list.

Neymar reveals Chelsea ambition

Neymar hit the headlines in the UK with a sensational brace during Brazil's 2-0 victory over Scotland at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday and said after the game that "it's a dream of every player to play at Chelsea".

The Santos striker was the subject of a failed bid by the Blues last summer and, after scout Piet de Visser confirmed Chelsea were still interested in the player in February, he was watched by Ancelotti at the weekend. Earlier this week, Neymar also had a meal with agent Pini Zahavi, who works closely with Chelsea, although the player claimed it was not business-related.

Neymar's man-of-the-match performance put a number of clubs on alert, and Ancelotti is happy that the 19-year-old singled out his club.

"It's good news because it's good for the club and the manager if players want to come here," Ancelotti said on Friday. "It shows the rumours are true there's a good atmosphere here.

"He's very young, a fantastic talent. At this moment, we're not interested.''

Assessing Neymar's performance on Sunday, Ancelotti - who also watched Chelsea midfielder Ramires play a starring role - added: ``It was a good performance, but the best player on the pitch was Ramires - 100%.''

As well as appearing to court Chelsea, Neymar has also said he would love to play for Barcelona but insisted he intended to see out his contract at Santos, which expires in 2014.
