Valencia furious with Barcelona over junior raid - but won't block Jordi Alba deal

Valencia president Manuel Llorente says they won't block Barcelona from signing Jordi Alba, despite anger over a raid on their youth team. Los Che chiefs are furious with Barca over a hostile move for juniors Enric Martínez and Abel Ruiz, both aged between 10-11 years.

But despite their issues, Llorente said of the Alba deal: "No influence at all. Jordi Alba's situation is a topic of professional football and the other is a matter of the youth system.

"Barca are showing the most interest and we have just entered negotiations. So they're the ones with the answer to this transfer."
