Udinese say that Coach Francesco Guidolin and young forward Luis Muriel will still be at the club for the 2013-14 campaign.
“Muriel will not leave Udine,” President Franco Soldati told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli. “He’s part of the project and will definitely stay.
“He’s a young kid who needs to grow, mature and show the best of himself. Udine is the ideal place for him to do that.
“We’ve had a lot of offers for the Colombian, a lot of sides are interested in him, but he will stay at Udinese.”
Muriel is a 21-year-old striker who has scored four goals in 12 Serie A games so far this term.
“As for Guidolin, he’ll stay here for a long time. Patron Giampaolo Pozzo has said the same thing. He won’t leave Udinese.”
