Manchester City have pulled themselves out of the race to sign Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao.
The Colombia international looks set to depart the Vicente Calderon this summer, despite claiming on Wednesday that he would be happy to stay in the Spanish capital.
City are amongst a clutch of clubs, including Chelsea, Monaco and Real Madrid, who were thought to be tracking Falcao, who has been valued at around £50million.
However, Soriano has ruled City out of the running, while also quashing claims they are interested in signing Real Madrid and Barcelona target Neymar.
“Neymar and Falcao? [These reports are] false, they have never been on our agenda,” Soriano is quoted as saying on Tuttomercatoweb.com.
The City chief executive went on to rubbish reports suggesting Sergio Aguero could leave the Etihad Stadium this summer after being linked with a move to Real Madrid.
“The first thing I want to emphasise is that we have never thought of selling Aguero. El Kun will be happy to stay with us this year,” Soriano added.
