Paris Saint-Germain have not held talks with Chelsea defender Ashley Cole over a possible move, the club’s sporting director Leonardo insists.

Cole’s current contract at Stamford Bridge expires in the off-season and interim Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez hinted in an early press conference that he and fellow veteran Frank Lampard are unlikely to be offered new deals.

It has fuelled speculation of Cole being reunited with former manager Carlo Ancelotti in the French capital, but Leonardo is adamant there has been no contact with the player.

“We have never spoken with Ashley Cole, there has never been any contact,” he told reporters.

“Carlo was his coach at Chelsea, that’s why that story is doing the rounds.”

The Brazilian also dismissed talk of a move for Inter Milan playmaker Wesley Sneijder, who has been exiled from Andrea Stramaccioni’s squad for refusing to agree a new deal at a lower wage.

“Sincerely, we have never contacted Wesley Sneijder to come to PSG,” Leonardo said.

“We have five players in his position already.”
