Roma have dismissed speculation that a clause exists in the contract of Luis Enrique which would facilitate a potential move to Barcelona.
The Spanish tactician is being linked with the Nou Camp job should Pep Guardiola opt against signing a new deal with the European giants.
However, Roma director general Franco Baldini – formerly of Real Madrid – has reacted quickly to rubbish such speculation.
“Luis will stay here with us until 2013 – and that’s for certain,” Fabio Capello’s former assistant commented.
“There are no clauses in his contract and his future with us is in no doubt whatsoever.”
Enrique, 41, was appointed by the Stadio Olimpico outfit in the summer after he spent three years in charge of the Barcelona B side.
