Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido insists that striker Luis Fabiano will not be leaving the club.
It had been reported that Manchester City were close to bringing the Brazilian international to the Premier League, but this speculation has been dismissed by del Nido.
Fabiano has scored 13 goals in 13 top flight games this season for a Sevilla side which has struggled to reproduce their form of the past two campaigns and it comes as no surprise that his performances have attracted interest from elsewhere.
The club's president though has suggested that it would take a bid of over £44million to prise the player away from the Sanchez Pizjuan, and has denied suggestions that the club only owns 35 per cent of the player's transfer rights.
"I will try to be as clear as possible," he told Sevilla's official website.
"Luis Fabiano has a fixed contract with Sevilla. A week ago we had meetings to discuss this matter, but Sevilla owns 100 per cent of the player.
"There is no possibility that he will abandon Sevilla.
"We are in discussions about his next contract and we have decided a number of years and it only remains for us to discuss his wage.
"In no way will Luis Fabiano leave, only if the club receives an offer of over 60million euros.
"The only person who has the authority to speak on this matter is me, not his representative or the player."
