Afellay staying at Barcelona

Ibrahim Afellay has no intention of leaving Barcelona this summer despite reported interest from Juventus and Lazio.

The Dutchman has been paired with both Serie A outfits who are hoping to entice Barca and the player into a move.

However, speaking with calciomercato.it, the winger's representative insists that his client is staying at the Nou Camp.

"These rumours just don't make sense," Rob Jansen stated. "There has been no contact with Juventus, nor with Lazio.

"Afellay is happy in Spain and I can assure you, 100 per cent, that he will still be a Barcelona player next season."

The Dutch international, 25, joined the European champions in January after almost eight years with PSV Eindhoven.
