Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido is confident of holding onto sports director Monchi.

Monchi has been linked with joining the ticket of Real Madrid presidential Florentino Perez.

But Del Nido says: "I do not believe at all the information that puts Monchi next season at Real Madrid.

"I have a good relationship with Florentino, rarely does a week go by that we do not speak on the phone and I doubt very much that Florentino will make such a move without asking me.

"If somebody really wants Monchi they could pay his buyout clause, which I think is £2 million."
