Striker Cools Move Talk Despite United and Spurs Interest
By Football Talk.
Sevilla striker Luis Fabiano has played down speculation linking him with a move away and has even suggested he may be prepared to sign a new contract with the Rojiblancos.
The Brazilian hitman has been linked with several clubs including Premier League duo Manchester United and Tottenham, with Spurs boss Harry Redknapp confirming he has been given the chance to snap up the 29-year-old.
In recent weeks Fabiano has strongly suggested he was about to part company with Sevilla, and with only one year left on his current contract, the La Liga outfit were keen to cash in now and not lose their prize asset for nothing next summer. But it seems Fabiano has made a U-turn and denied he was set for a move away.
“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.”
