With former Real Madrid coach Rafael Benitez warning teams interested in the 26-year-old to make a bid before the transfer deadline, sources have told MARCA that Los Blancos have never even considered the player, despite headlines claiming otherwise.

“In football you receive offers but you must only sell if it is the right offer, we currently do not have such an offer and if someone thinks they will wait until August 31, I can promise them it will be difficult,” Benitez said.

The Newcastle boss was in no mood for games regarding a possible transfer, with the north east club determined not to be drawn into a panic sale.
