Chelsea target Andrea Pirlo will honour his contract with AC Milan and a snub a move to Stamford Bridge, according to his agent.
The Italian midfielder has been strongly linked with a move to the Blues this summer and AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi claimed recently he will consider offers for Pirlo.
But Pirlo's agent Tullio Tinti told Gazzetta dello Sport: 'We are not worried by Berlusconi's comment. Pirlo is a Milan player. He is under contract and he honours contracts.'
However, AC Milan general manager Adriano Galliani today admitted Pirlo had his price. 'Pirlo has not been sold,' Galliani told Sky Italia. 'But it depends on the size of the offer.'
The 30-year-old is under contract with AC Milan until June 2012. The World Cup winner made 26 league appearances as the Rossoneri finished third in Serie A last season.
