Villarreal intend to keep Giuseppe Rossi - Antonio Cordon

Villarreal will not bow to pressure and sell Giuseppe Rossi should clubs advance for his services during the summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old Italian has been in sensational form and is the club's top scorer in la Liga this season with 15 goals in 29 games.

Barcelona, Juventus and Napoli have all been linked with his services. However, even top offers are unlikely to loosen the Yellow Submarine's grip to negotiate as director of sport Antonio Cordon declares his position.

"He [Rossi] is a player we want to keep here for many years," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"Rossi is one of the best players in Europe, and Barcelona always follow the best.

"Villarreal and Rossi want to continue this fantastic relationship. We don't want to sell our players."

The Spanish club take on Real Zaragoza in la Liga tonight hoping to consolidate fourth place.
