Spanish teenager to snub Man Utd move

Spanish teenager to snub Man Utd move

Villalba to stay put at Valencia

Spanish whizkid Fran Villalba is prepared to snub advances from Manchester United to pen a new long-term deal at Valencia. The 18-year-old was recommended to the Red Devils by club legend Gary Neville.

The teenager, who is likened to Manchester City ace David Silva, made his first-team under Gary Neville last term.

Agent Vicente Flores had recently cited that his client is considering a possible move to Old Trafford amid his lack of playing time at Mestalla.

However, Villalba has sorted out his issues with Los Che, and is leaning towards a fresh deal on a reasonable wage hike.

The La Liga side are also expected to increase his buy-out clause which is currently at a meagre sum of £3.6m.

Villalba, who has represented Spain at all youth levels, has appeared in four outings for Valencia till date.
