Real Madrid will reportedly not sell Federico Valverde under any circumstances this summer amid fresh speculation linking the midfielder with a move to the Premier League.
The 24-year-old enjoyed a strong 2022-23 campaign for Los Blancos, scoring 12 goals and registering seven assists in 56 appearances in all competitions.
Valverde signed a contract extension with Real Madrid in August 2021, with his current deal having another four years left to run, but there has recently been speculation surrounding his future.
A number of Premier League clubs are said to be showing an interest in the Uruguay international, who moved to Bernabeu from Penarol in 2016.
However, according to AS, there is no chance of Real Madrid allowing the South American to leave the club during this summer's transfer window.
The report claims that Valverde is deemed to be 'non-transferable', meaning that the club will not listen to any offers that might arrive for him this summer.
Real Madrid are said to view the midfielder as a vital part of their plans moving forward, with the club looking to put together a squad capable of continuing to claim silverware in the coming years.
Eduardo Camavinga is also set to be used in his normal midfield position next season, which further increases the competition for spots in the middle.
Jude Bellingham is also arriving in a big-money deal from Borussia Dortmund, which had allegedly led to some Premier League clubs believing that Valverde might be available.
The Uruguayan has featured on 204 occasions for Real Madrid in all competitions, scoring 18 goals and registering five assists in the process.
Valverde has won a host of silverware during his time in the first team, lifting two La Liga titles, one Copa del Rey, two Spanish Super Cups, the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and two Club World Cups.
Real Madrid are expected to be active in this summer's market, as the recent departures of Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Mariano Diaz and Eden Hazard have left them short in the final third of the field.
