Emery expecting Villa stay

03 August 2009 10:08
Valencia coach Unai Emery remains confident that Spain striker David Villa will resist all offers and opt to stay at the Mestalla this season. The 27-year-old was linked with both Barcelona and Real Madrid earlier this summer, while interest from some of England's major clubs is rumoured to be growing. However, an upbeat Emery said: "Valencia want to keep David, but he also wants to stay with us. We don't want to sell him because he is priceless. "Barcelona and Real Madrid have already shown an interest in him, but David decided to come back to us. "That was an unbelievable feeling for the club and we don't believe he will change (for Liverpool or Manchester United). "He is willing to play for us and everything else is just speculation."
