Valencia warn Juventus away from Silva

February 15, 2009

Valencia president Vicente Soriano has dismissed reports linking Italian giants Juventus with a big-money swoop for David Silva.

It has been suggested that Juve have been in contact with Valencia over the possibility of making a 30million euros bid for the Spain international, but Soriano insists that is news to him.

"Honestly, I was surprised when they told me this. There is nothing to say about Silva," he said in AS.

"Juventus have not approached us, I have no news on this matter. I was a little perplexed when I saw this information in the press. This is not true. Whoever said it has been misinformed.

"I cannot be any more blunt in saying we have no intention of selling Silva. I cannot say anything more than this. There is absolutely nothing from Juventus."
