The agent of Real Madrid striker Javier Saviola has ruled out an end-of-season return to Argentina.

Diego Queiroga said: "When I told Javier he thought I was kidding. It is not true that Boca Juniors have contacted me and are interested in him. I categorically deny this to reassure fans of River Plate.

"The plan for Javier is to continue playing in Europe. Italy, Spain and England have shown interest but there's also Portugal, France and Germany."
