The Brazilian said: “I’m happy that a club such as Barcelona is interested in me. They’re a team of winners and their interest is a source of pride for me.
“I’m a Chelsea player for now. I work hard every day to make people appreciate what I do.
“I try to do my job in the best way possible, wherever I am.”
Meanwhile, interim Chelsea boss Spaniard Rafa Benitez insists his legacy will be felt at Stamford Bridge for years to come because he has made the squad better.
He said: “My job is to try to win and improve players.
“Gary Cahill has improved a lot with his movement and understanding of the game.
“I said Cesar Azpilicueta would get in the Spain team.
“And Victor Moses won the player of the tournament in the African Nations Cup. That makes you very proud.”
