Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido says Real Madrid will not be using their buy-back option for Alvaro Negredo.

Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido says Real Madrid will not be using their buy-back option for Alvaro Negredo.

Negredo netted a career-high 20 league goals last season, sparking speculation of a return to the Bernabeu, but del Nido can foresee no such transfer.

"In the last conversation we had with Real Madrid, they told our director general that they didn't intend to use the re-buy clause," del Nido said.

"The player has also said publicly that he doesn't want to leave Sevilla. I don't think there is a chance he won't be a Sevilla player in the coming seasons."
