Reign in Spain: David Villa celebrates one of his many goals for Valencia
Valencia vice-president Fernando Gomez has confirmed theyhave held talks with City regarding the possible transfer of the Spainstriker to the Barclays Premier League side.
However, Jose Luis Tamargo claims Villa will not leave Spain. 'He will not move from Spain, he's very clear on that,' he told Spanish sports daily El Mundo Deportivo.
Valencia are in deep financial trouble and admitted for the firsttime last week that they may need to cash in on some of their prizedassets in a bid to ease their problems.
Villa, who penned a six-year contract with Valencia only lastAugust, is arguably the club's most valuable player and could net LosChe a fee of around 45million euros.
That would be no problem for cash-rich City, who would also beprepared to pay the 27-year-old a hefty salary to lure him toEastlands, but Tamargo insists no amount of money would tempt Villaaway from Spain.
He added: 'I don't know what type of contact there has beenbetween them, if there has been, nor any agreements that could be madebut his future will not be outside the country. It's not a question of money.'
Tamargo's claims will increase speculation the Euro 2008 winner isset for a move to Barcelona at the end of the season, with whom hereportedly has a verbal agreement.
