Sevilla sporting director Ramon Rodriguez believes Luis Fabiano will snub AC Milan in favour of a stay at Sanchez Pizjuan.
The Brazil striker has been linked with a move to Serie A in the summer transfer window, with Milan topping the list of likely destinations.
Rodriguez, though, has been in regular contact with his star striker during the World Cup and believes he would rather stay in Spain, despite Fabiano himself suggesting otherwise.
The 29-year-old has hinted that a move to Milan or Manchester United would be of particular appeal, but neither club, according to Rodriguez, have been in contact over his signature.
"I spoke to Luis almost every day when he was in South Africa and his main, and I believe only, idea is to remain at Sevilla," he said.
"Milan, as of today, have not made any offer. Not Milan or any other club.
"We are expecting him back on the 26th July (for pre-season training), along with (Didier) Zakora and (Sebastien) Squillaci (who were are also away at the World Cup)."
