David Villa is not expecting a speedy resolution to the uncertainty surrounding his Valencia future.
The Spaniard has been strongly linked with a transfer to Real Madrid this summer, with Los Che open to a move as they continue
to struggle financially.
A transfer was expected to be nearing completion only for Villa's agent, Jose Luis Tamargo, to claim that Valencia are no longer willing to discuss the potential sale of the forward.
Villa, who is currently on international duty at the Confederations Cup, has admitted that the past week has been a
difficult period of his career.
"I don't believe that my future will be settled quickly," said Villa.
"The past week hasn't been easy, nobody can imagine what I've been through. It has been a really bad time. I must just put it out of my mind."
Meanwhile, Liverpool striker Fernando Torres feels that his compatriot Villa will remain in Primera Division, despite reported interest from Chelsea.
"Listen, I think Villa will play in Spain next year," said Torres in the Daily Star.
"It's his decision - but I think Barcelona and Real Madrid are trying to sign him and he will be in Spain.
"I don't think Chelsea's money will tempt him, or United. I think with his abilities and qualities he is better for the Spanish league - he scores over 25 goals every season there.
"I would like him to come to Liverpool of course but I think he is too expensive for us.
"I would prefer it if he played in Spain than signed for Chelsea or United. That's what I'll tell him!"
