Valencia boss Cesare Prandelli is not contemplating the departure of Barcelona target Joao Cancelo.
Barca are looking for a new right-back and Cancelo is reportedly on their shortlist of candidates.
However, Prandelli feels the Portuguese is “very important” for Valencia and says he is not thinking about the prospect of the defender leaving the club.
“I do not contemplate Cancelo’s exit,” he told Todomercadoweb.es.
“It’s something that we have to speak about with the club, but in this moment we must not think about the transfer market.
“He is a very important player, who is growing. He can play in various positions without problems.”
