“Until now there has been no contact with us. In fact, I can say more: this time we have no offers from any club for Alvaro Pereira. I can only speak about the present and the truth is that there are no official offers. Alvaro Pereira will start training on Wednesday with FC Porto, but the market only closes on August 31 and until August 31 and anything can happen. He is aware that he has a contract until 2015 and that for now is focused on FC Porto, but also knows that things change quickly and that any time something could happen. If a club can pay the clause of €30m [£26.3m] then we will see.”
Liverpool, Chelsea are reported to be interested in the player.
