World class Brazilian admits delight at being linked with summer move to Chelsea

Atletico Madrid defender Miranda admits he is flattered by speculation linking him with Chelsea.

The Brazilian centre-back, who is out of contract in 2016, has been touted for a move to Stamford Bridge on the back of his assured displays at the back for Atleti.

And when asked how he feels about speculation linking him to Chelsea he told AS: “Of course these news [stories] reach me.

“And they cheered me up. It’s a sign that I am doing a good job.

“I look at it with pride, but my intention is to stay at Atletico because I still have a year and a half left on my contract.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
