Schalke 04 deny speculation linking them with a swoop for Barcelona defender Dani Alves.

Schalke 04 director of sport Horst Heldt has said that at no point have the club considered an approach for Barcelona defender Dani Alves.

The Brazilian has been linked with a move away from the Now Camp this summer, with the Bundesliga club and Manchester City reported to be two potential destinations.

However, Heldt has now moved to dismiss the speculation, describing it as "completely false".

"I usually don't do this, but this time there is such a completely false representation of our transfer policy in public," Heldt told the club's official website.

"Dani Alves is a world-class footballer, there is no doubt about that but we have not considered this player, not even theoretically. These reports are just total nonsense.

"We have never made an offer to his club, nor have we had any contact with the player or his agent in any form, and he has not been offered to us either."

The 29-year-old has declared himself happy at Barca.
