The Brazilian has been regularly linked with a move to the Camp Nou over the last couple of seasons and says the Catalan giants did make an approach to Chelsea.
“The only real official offer I had came from Barcelona, last year, after the World Cup,” he said.
“Barcelona indeed presented an offer to Chelsea but it was rejected.
“That was the only actual time I had to discuss something like this with my family, although we really love it here (London). So there were several factors that helped us in staying.”
