Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has poured cold water over rumours that the club had bid for Juventus star Patrice Evra.
'These media tabloids like to make up stuff as they go along', laughed the Chelsea boss. 'As it stands, we have expressed no interested in this player.'
Meanwhile, sources at Juventus Stadium have said that the club will reject any advances for the French right-back.
'They've basically issued a hands-off warning to Chelsea.'
