thumbnail Hello,

The versatile winger has reiterated his desire to remain at the Mestalla, while declaring he has no intention of playing alongside Kaka or CR7.

David Silva has touched down in Valencia after returning from Confederations Cup duties with Spain in South Africa.

Upon his arrival at the airport in the capital for his connecting flight, the 23-year-old was quickly bombarded with questions about his future, even though his employers had already made it abundantly clear that he will not be for sale.

And now the player himself has put to bed all rumours about any possible departure.

When asked by one reporter if he would follow Raul Albiol to Real Madrid and earn a chance to feature alongside the latest batch of Galacticos, he replied, “I don’t have any plans to play alongside Kaka and Cristiano Ronaldo.

“I am happy here and I am thinking only about Valencia, who are a great club and who also have fantastic players.

“Now, all I want to do is have my rest after a long campaign and when the pre-season begins, I want to make sure my batteries are fully recharged.”

Unai Emery and his charges will begin their pre-season tour in the Netherlands on July 20, although Silva, along with his international team-mates Pablo Hernandez, Juan Mata, Carlos Marchena and David Villa (assuming he stays at Los Che), are only expected to join up with the rest of the squad at the end of July.
