Manchester United & Barcelona yet to make Valero transfer move

Manchester United and Barcelona do not yet appear to have made a move for Borja Valero, with the player's agent having confirmed that he has had no contact with the clubs over his client.

29-year-old Valero - a former Spanish international who currently represents Serie A side Fiorentina - was surprisingly linked with a possible switch to Old Trafford earlier this week and while Alejandro Camano has acknowledged that speculation, he insists that there have been no talks.

"At this moment I can not report on anything new, you should speak with the club - the future is in their hands. At this time we have not planned anything. Now the focus is turned to the league and the Italian Cup final," his quotes were cited by talkSPORT.

"I know that there have been rumours on the interest of Manchester United and Barcelona, but I have not had any contact. He is in love with Florence and Fiorentina and is very pleased to be part of the club, but at the moment there is no relevant news about his future."

Manchester United - who saw their chances of qualifying for next season's Champions League extinguished with a 3-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Allianz Arena on Wednesday evening - have had a difficult first season under David Moyes and, as such, are expected to lavish significant sums on fresh recruits when the market opens in July.

Centre-midfield will surely be an area of priority for Moyes, with Darren Fletcher's future subject to considerable debate and the likes of Tom Cleverley and Michael Carrick having drastically underperformed of late.

However, quite whether the £25 million-rated Valero is the answer considering that he was distinctly unimpressive during his last stint in the Premier League with West Brom remains to be seen.

If Manchester United do indeed decide to move for the former Villarreal playmaker, then you would think that Barcelona would be hampered - at least until the outcome of their imminent appeal, anyway - by a recent transfer ban that could see them unable to complete the purchase of any new players for the next two windows.
