Emerson has hit back at recent reports claiming he is unhappy at Chelsea, calling out journalists in the English media for trying to “spread fake news”.
Chelsea added Emerson to their ranks back in January 2018, snapping him up from Italian giants Roma in a €20 million (£18m/$22m) deal.
The Italy international has since racked up 52 appearances for the Blues across all competitions, while picking up a Europa League winners’ medal.
The 25-year-old took to Instagram to set the record straight on Thursday, insisting he has never indicated that his future lies away from the Bridge.
“The world is going through a really difficult moment [with the coronavirus pandemic] and there are journalists who want to spread fake news around to have content,” said Emerson.
“I don’t speak too much, but here is my only and last statement regarding this news.
“I never said that and I think definitely the opposite of what was mentioned, without my knowledge.
“Respect and gratitude always. Enjoy your family.”
The full-back is currently self-isolating along with the rest of his team-mates amid the coronavirus outbreak which has seen the 2019-20 campaign suspended until April 30.
