Valencia have again denied reports claiming Chelsea made an offer for striker David Villa.
Spain international Villa is one of the most sought after players in European football at the moment, and Chelsea, one of the few clubs who could afford his €126m buy-out clause, have been linked with him for a number of months.
“It is totally false the English club made an offer of €70m for our player,” Valencia sporting director Amedeo Carboni told Las Provincias.
“The club is convinced that he is going nowhere and anyone who tries is wasting their time.
“We are not worried that Villa is a target for other clubs because this is normal, but his exit is only feasible if a club is willing to pay the real price of the player.”
Meanwhile, Valencia are looking to bring defender Marco Caneira back to the club in the summer.
The Portuguese defender has been on loan at Sporting Lisbon this year, but is contracted to Valencia until 2011, and coach Quique Sanchez Flores believes the player would strengthen his options next season.
“The coach Quique Sanchez Flores thinks that he would be able to help the team in the new season,” the player’s agent, Paulo Barbosa, told the Spanish press.
“At the end of the season, I will attend a meeting between all parties to find a solution.”
He added: “The decision of the player will be key.”
