Fiorentina midfielder Borja Valero has insisted he has no interest in signing for Manchester United and would in fact jump at the chance to sign a new deal with the Serie A giants.
Valero has banished memories of a indifferent Premier League campaign with West Bromwich Albion in 2008 to become one of Serie A's most influential playmakers, contributing seven goals and eight assists for Fiorentina this season in another productive campaign.
That impressive form has led to reported interest from Manchester United, but the Spanish international is adamant that his long-term future lies in Tuscany and he wants to cement that commitment by signing a new contract quickly.
The 29-year-old told Sky Sport Italia: "A renewal? It’s not a problem.
"If the club called, I’d be ready to sign in five minutes!”
Fiorentina have the schemer under contract until 2016, although talks over an extension to fend off interest from clubs across the continent are expected this summer.
United's sudden decline in the Premier League has prompted a glut of speculation over potential summer signings, with Red Devils boss David Moyes expected to implement recruitment on a massive scale before next season, leading to Valero's name being added to that mix.
La Viola are currently in talks with United to tempt Brazilian midfielder Anderson to make a permanent move to Florence, but the chances of Valero heading the other way look very slim after today's admission.
