Ronaldinho dismisses Chelsea link
Ronaldinho
Ronaldinho was on the scoresheet in Barca's weekend win
Brazil and Barcelona playmaker Ronaldinho has ruled out a big-money summer move to Chelsea.

"I know Chelsea want to sign me but they are a team I don't want to play for," he told the News of the World.

Ronaldinho, 25, was angered by the Blues' physical approach in the recent Champions League meeting - a tie Barca lead 2-1 going into the second leg.

"They went to kick my feet before trying to get the ball. Their style does not interest me," he added.

"I've been feeling the pain from those kicks from Chelsea and had to pull out of Brazil's friendly because of it.

"That kind of game isn't for me and rather than ever play like that I'd say 'no thank you'."

After coming back from a goal down to beat 10-man Chelsea in the first leg, Barca are firm favourites to progress to the last eight in Tuesday's return fixture at the Nou Camp.

And having sat out Brazil's midweek friendly against Russia in Moscow, Ronaldinho warmed up for Champions League action with a goal in Barca's 3-2 win over Deportivo La Coruna.
