Monaco have distanced themselves from reports that they were on the verge of signing Barcelona’s Victor Valdes and Manchester City’s Carlos Tevez according to

The wealthy French side have already shown themselves willing to splash the cash this summer as they look to build a team capable of challenging for honours on both domestic and European fronts.

The club recently announced the signing of James Rodriguez and Joao Moutinho from Portuguese side Porto while they are expected to confirm the arrival of Atletico Madrid’s Colombian striker Radamel Falcao in the coming days.

But the club have sought to pour cold water on speculation suggesting they are set to continue their spending spree by bringing in Tevez and Valdes.

Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes has made no secret of his desire to leave the Nou Camp as he goes in search of a new challenge. But Monaco CEO Vadim Vasilyev denied that the French club would be offering him an escape route from Catalonia, insisting the club were happy with their current number one Danijel Subacic.

Vasilyev went on to deny reports linking the club with Monaco despite the Manchester City having seemingly made encouraging noises towards the club in recent days.
