Internazionale defender Nicolas Burdisso has denied being on the verge of joining Chelsea in a swap deal involving Ricardo Carvalho. Carvalho is widely expected to join the Italian club after recently revealing his frustration at a season of limited first-team opportunities at Stamford Bridge. The Portugal defender is now set to rejoin former Blues and current Inter boss Jose Mourinho at the Italian club. However, Argentina international centre-half Burdisso has denied suggestions that he will head in the opposite direction as part of the deal. "I've spoken to Inter coach Jose Mourinho who said he's happy with me and I've much to give," said the 28-year-old defender. "Last season was positive for me and my wish is to remain here. "I have no intention to change team."
