Fabiano wants to stay at Sevilla

Sevilla striker Luis Fabiano has spoken of his desire to remain at the La Liga side for the foreseeable future.

The Brazil international impressed at this summer's World Cup finals in South Africa and his led to speculation regarding his future.



With AC Milan, Manchester United and Chelsea all rumoured to be keen on his signature, the frontman has said he has no reason to leave the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan-based outfit.



Speaking to ABC, he said: "It is true that other clubs were interested in me but I have not held advanced negotiations with anyone.



"I am very happy at Sevilla and I have never said that I will be leaving for Milan or Manchester United. These are big clubs, but Sevilla are also among the best in Europe.



"Could I sign a new deal with Sevilla? My agent is negotiating with the president, but there is no pressure because we have a lot of time.



"We have not done too well in the Champions League over recent seasons but we are set to enter the qualifiers in August and we have to make sure we give 100 per cent to make the group stage."



Meanwhile, Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has admitted Rafael Marquez and Zlatan Ibrahimovic's futures at the club depend on themselves.



The duo have been tipped to leave the La Liga powerhouse, but Guardiola would be happy to see them remain at the club next term.



Speaking to reporters, he said: "Marquez's future depends on him. After everything he has given the club, he will be the one to decide his future.



"Ibrahimovic had a really good season last year. He will decide his future - he is a special player.



"I have not spoken with the previous president or the new one to put him on the market.



"If he stays, he is a player who needs to continue to be important for us. He will decide what to do with his agent."



Elsewhere, Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria wants to repay the faith coach Jose Mourinho has placed in him.



The Argentina international made a big-money move from Benfica after he impressed for his country at the World Cup finals in South Africa and he is now ready to shine in La Liga.



Speaking to AS, he said: "I am excited to be here and just want it to start.



"I am relaxed and will rest during these days before starting pre-season training.



"I couldn't believe he wanted to sign me. It's something good for me and also very special at the same time.



"I will always be grateful that he said he wanted me to come to Real Madrid.



"I will try to give everything on and off the pitch to prove he made the right decision to bring me here."
