Valencia: In-demand Silva is staying with us
Valencia's in-demand midfielder David Silva will be staying in Spain after the club rejected a bid from Manchester United.
The Spanish star had been linked with a move away as the club are struggling financially, but coach Unai Emery has maintained that his future lies with Valencia.
'Silva is my player,' he said. 'We are going to build a team and it's not possible for him to go to another club.
'Valencia is a very big club with all the possibilities for him to achieve what he wants.'
The 22-year-old is two years into a seven-year contract and showed his quality by helping Spain to win Euro 2008. Reportedly on the radar of many of Europe's top clubs, Silva's agent claimed on Tuesday that United had made a bid for the player.
'Manchester United made an offer for David Silva, but this has been turned down by Valencia,' Llorente told Sky Sports News.
'Silva doesn't want to play in England because he is happy at Valencia.
'His family are settled and if he was to move it would only be to another Spanish club, like Real Madrid or Barcelona. David Silva will start the new season at Valencia.'
Los Che supremo Vicente Soriano has also moved to quash speculation linking star striker David Villa with a move.
'I can assure everyone that Villa and Silva will stay next season with Valencia,' he told reporters.
