Valencia take Villa off transfer market
Friday 19 June 2009
Valencia have decided not to sell striker David Villa despite holding talks with three leading clubs, the Spanish international's agent said today.
"Valencia have changed their minds and they are telling us they don't want to sell the player after, as everyone knows, having talks with three of the four top clubs," Villa's agent, Jose Luis Tamargo, said in a statement carried in the Spanish media.
"They have put us through a situation that is, sadly, very unpleasant because this is no good for anyone," he added.
Valencia could not immediately be reached for comment.
Villa, who is currently with the Spanish squad at the Confederations Cup in South Africa, has been strongly linked with Real Madrid and media have also reported interest from Barcelona and Chelsea.
