Ruben Baraja insists there's no need for Valencia's best players to leave this summer.

Iker Casillas claimed yesterday that Valencia trio Juan Mata, David Villa and David Silva should join Real Madrid "because they deserve to play for a big club".

"We are a big club," responded Baraja.

"Look, it's logical that our players are being watched by other teams.

"But I hope we can qualify for the Champions League so no-one sees the need to leave us."
