Fabiano ready to sign new Sevilla deal
Brazil striker Luis Fabiano has revealed he is close to agreeing a new contract with Sevilla amid fresh media speculation linking him to Real Madrid. Luis Fabiano's future at Sevilla has been the source of much speculation since Christmas, and reports in Spain over the weekend suggested Madrid were poised to step up their supposed interest in the hitman. However, speaking on Monday after undergoing pre-season medical tests with Sevilla, the 27-year-old not only insisted he knew nothing of any supposed interest from the Primera Liga champions, but also that he was not far off a new deal with his current employers. 'I know nothing of this (Madrid reports). I have just arrived and it is true that the contract renewal with Sevilla is very advanced,' said Luis Fabiano on his club's website. 'The only thing lacking is agreeing the (buy-out) clause and that's it. I am not going to talk of Madrid and things that I don't know. 'I have spoken with president (Jose Maria) Del Nido during the holidays and everything is almost all done. I am not going with (Daniel) Alves, (Seydou) Keita and (Christian) Poulsen.'
