Bruno plays down Napoli link

Villarreal's Bruno Soriano has distanced himself from transfer links with Serie A outfit Napoli.

The in-form 29-year-old has attracted speculation in recent days pairing him with a move to Rafa Benitez’s side in Italy, but he has looked to cool such rumours.

“I don’t know if any offers have arrived and I don’t know if I will leave in January,” Bruno has told reporters this week.

“I’m not thinking about other options right now, only Villarreal.

“I won’t talk about Napoli. All I will say is that I’m happy in Spain and this is a very exciting season for me.

“The President is intelligent. He knows how to move in certain situations and I have an excellent rapport with him.”
