The Blues have been linked with the Italy international for some time – with some of the most recent reports suggesting that a deal had even been agreed between the two clubs.
However, these rumours seem wide of the mark, and the Inter boss has reiterated that the club will not be selling one of their star players.
But the Spalletti did go on to admit he did not know what would happen over the next few days in terms of whether the Blues would make a bid for Candreva.
“My position is to keep him and the club agrees with me, for now he has not given any other signs,” Spalletti told reporters on Saturday.
“We go forward calmly, but I don’t know what could happen tomorrow. As far as I can tell, Chelsea could try to do something. You are the ones who always anticipate these situations, so I should ask you.
“You are very good at writing names in the papers and getting people swept up in it. I had fallen for it too this time, when you talked about [Arturo] Vidal and [Alexis] Sanchez, I was there staring at the gate to see if they would walk in. Then I pinched myself.
“The truth is, I am happy with what I’ve got, four or five players have left and as many came in. Naturally, if you can get world-class players, it provides an advantage because they are immediately ready to give results, but when you have great players who are just about to become world-class, it depends on communication and how ready they are.”
