Javi Garcia only leaving Benfica for €30m, insists club president

The Spain international has reportedly caught the attention of Manchester City, but will not be available on the cheap this summer
Benfica president Luis Filipe Vieira has stressed that the Portuguese giants have no intention of letting go of Javi Garcia for anything less than his €30 million buy-out clause.

The midfielder has recently been linked with a move to Manchester City, but the Premier League champions will not get their man on the cheap.

"Javi will only leave if a club matches his buy-out clause. This figure is non-negotiable," the Benfica president stated to reporters.

The 25-year-old midfielder joined Benfica from Real Madrid in the summer of 2009, and has since developed into a key player for the Lisbon giants.

Javi Garcia inked a new deal with Benfica until the summer of 2018 back in March.
