Valencia confirm City talks

Los Che’s are struggling with financial problems and could be forced to sell several of their most valuable assets at the end of the season.

Villa’s contract with Valencia expires in 2014 and the Spaniard has admitted he would like to stay at the club.

Valencia vice-president Fernando Gomez said: “Yes, it’s true but they didn’t make us an any offer.

“The president (Vicente Soriano) asked for a significant amount and they didn’t agree.”
