"We will not be selling Muriel, as he is not on the market," Udinese director of sport Cristiano Giaretta told Radio Crc.
"It's all rumours, because we will not sell our prize players in the last week of the transfer market.
"We are relying on Muriel, but he still needs to show his full potential. For now we don't intend to sell, but he'll be ready for a big club next year."
