Recent comments made by former Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster have led some to suggest that Raul blocked a move for David Villa by Los Merengues, but El Guaje has ridiculed such suggestions.
Speaking to Marca, Villa said, "That rumour is not true."
"It is impossible that a player with as much class on and off the pitch as Raul would speak poorly of me.
"I have always had a good relationship with Raul, even though we have hardly met on international duty."
Villa then spoke about the summer transfer saga in more detail, continuing, "Before the Euros, the club told me what my asking price was, and I thought they were going to sell me."
"But when I returned from my vacations, Vicente Soriano said that he did not want me to leave Valencia."
"That removed all doubt for me."
