Man Utd and Spurs target rules out Sevilla exit

The 29-year-old has been linked with the likes of Manchester United and Tottenham in recent weeks.

“It is true that other clubs were interested in me but I have not held advanced negotiations with anyone,” he told ABC.

“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.

“I am due to return to training on 26th July and I am looking forward to getting back to work.

“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.”
