Betis don't want David de Gea. At least that is what the club have briefed after rumours circulated earlier this week that they were lining up the former Manchester United and Spain goalkeeper.
Perhaps it's not entirely surprising. They have two top keepers in the highly-rated Rui Silva and the massively experienced Claudio Bravo.
The latter is just coming back from injury and the former is out for four weeks. But after the next international break both will be fit and wanting to play - there is no room for a third senior keeper.
Perhaps what is more surprising than Betis not wanting De Gea is that so far - despite the fact that he is a free agent - no one seems to want him.
The 32-year-old ought not to be past his peak. Silva and Bravo at Betis are 29 and 40 respectively. Goalkeepers peak later and play until they are older.
De Gea's problems are two-fold: the market is flooded with goalkeeping talent - at least for the clubs he wants to move on to after 12 years at Manchester United.
And for many coaches he is seen as a save-making keeper who hasn't developed other facets of his game such as being able to sweeper-keep or help his defenders play out of a high press.
The first problem was key in preventing his dream switch to Real Madrid. When they lost Thibaut Courtois to a cruciate knee injury at the start of the season they needed to move quickly for a quality replacement and De Gea was the first name mentioned.
But before too long it became clear that he was being talked about everywhere on social media but not really being discussed at Real Madrid. Their attention was on the Sevilla keeper of Yassine 'Bono' Bonnou. He is Morocco's No 1 and Sevilla were not in a position to turn down a £17million offer.
