It's been suggested the Real captain urged the board to drop their push for Villa in the summer over fears for his position in the team.
But Villa insists: "That rumour is not true. A player with so much class inside and outside the field like Raul would never do such a thing. That rumour isn't why I did not sign for Real Madrid. I've always had a good relationship with Raul."
Villa, who is now fully committed to Valencia, was asked about a future move to Madrid and added: "I do not think that (president) Vicente Soriano would accept any offer for me.
"You can never say never to anything, because maybe in two years Valencia will ask me to leave."
