Reported Manchester City target Juan Mata will be staying with Spanish outfit Valencia, according to president Manuel Llorente.

Spanish media claim that City boss Roberto Mancini is looking to pair Mata with his former Valencia team-mate David Silva, who moved to Eastlands last summer.

But Llorente has made it clear he is not looking to sell - having been forced to sell prized assets David Villa and Silva last year.

"The kid is un-negotiable because he is a key man in our project," Llorente told Provincials.

The player's agent and father, also named Juan, insists he has not had any contact with City.

"I have not spoken with City," he told skysports.com.
