Chelsea not planning to sign Neymar insist Carlo Ancelotti
Carlo Ancelotti today welcomed Neymar's latest declaration that he would love to join Chelsea.
But the Blues boss insisted signing the Brazilian star was not currently on the club's agenda.
Ancelotti attended Brazil's 2-0 friendly win against Scotland on Sunday, in which Neymar scored both goals.
The 19-year-old Santos striker was reportedly the subject of a failed bid by Chelsea last summer and his value has undoubtedly gone up following his man-of-the-match performance at the Emirates Stadium.
He said afterwards, "it's a dream of every player to play at Chelsea", reiterating comments he had made earlier in the season.
Ancelotti said this morning: "It's good news because it's good for the club and the manager if players want to come here.
"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.
