Chelsea's billionaire owner Roman Abramovich has dismissed reports that he will no longer spend heavily to bring players to Stamford Bridge.
Abramovich has spent nearly £250m at Stamford Bridge
Recent newspaper reports have suggested that Abramovich, who took over at Chelsea in 2003, would be spending less in the transfer market in future years.
But he told radio station Ekho Moskvy that such claims were "nonsense".
He added: "Everything will remain the same. My relationship with Chelsea has not changed. I don't want to change."
Rumours have persisted that Abramovich - who is Russia's richest man with an estimated £9.5bn fortune, according to Forbes Magazine - is to reduce his spending.
That has led to speculation that key players like Frank Lampard and skipper John Terry could leave.
Abramovich has spent about £250m on player transfers since buying Chelsea, including shelling out a British record £30m for AC Milan striker Andriy Shevchenko in 2006.
