RB Leipzig chief executive Oliver Mintzlaff has dismissed speculation linking Chelsea with Josko Gvardiol.
The highly-rated young defender is one of the most sought after players in his age group.
The 20-year-old is said to be close to a move to Chelsea, which would include a one-year loan at Leipzig, per Fabrizio Romano and other sources.
However, Mintzlaff was more dismissive about such claims in an interview recently.
He told Bild Sport: “Josko still has a contract with us until 2026.
“We assume that he will not only play with us this season, but also next season.”
