Italian media were speculating that Chilean playmaker Pizarro and Czech midfielder Jankulovski had been targeted by a number of sides and they were keen to depart.
However, Spalletti has sat down and spoken with the duo and stated they would be happy to continue their careers with the team.
"I've spoken to them and it doesn't appear they are unhappy to stay, although they have the ambition to play for a big club," Spalletti said to the club's official website.
"Who wouldn't be flattered at the possibility of joining Inter, Juve or Milan? I think no one.
"But it's not true to say they both want to leave Udinese. I know them really well and they are great professionals."
