MUNICH (AP) -Didier Drogba has dismissed speculation linking him to Barcelona after what could be his last game for Chelsea in the Champions League final on Saturday.

The 34-year-old forward's contract with Chelsea expires next month after eight years with the club.

Drogba says he heard "a lot of rumors" that he's been offered to Barcelona - but "it's not true."

Drogba says the "excitement" of facing Bayern Munich in the Champions League final "is more important than Barcelona approaching me or not."

The Ivory Coast international smiled when asked at the pre-match news conference if he expected contract negotiations with Chelsea's chief executive.

Drogba says: "I will sit down with him and we're going to talk."
