Bianchi-Atletico link rejected

Rolando Bianchi's agent brother has dismissed whispers that Atletico Madrid are keen on the Torino ace.

"Atletico Madrid have never contacted me," Tommaso Bianchi told TMW.

"It's a nice voice though, much like the one linking him with Milan. It shows that he is doing well and is well appreciated.

"Atletico are an important club on an international level and therefore it is pleasing, but there is some way to go in order to say that there is any truth in it."

However, even if Atletico were keen then Tommaso hinted that Bianchi probably wouldn't consider it.

"He's already spent some time abroad and he knows what a transfer of this nature involves," he added.

"For now though the transfer market is the last thing on our mind. Rolando is thinking about recovering as soon as possible in order to help Torino, a club he is tied to."

Bianchi endured a difficult spell at Manchester City after impressing in Serie A with little Reggina.

Torino President Urbano Cairo has also shot down the rumour. "He's a point of strength for us, on the field and in the changing room, that's why he is not for sale."
