Madrid: Sevilla coach Antonio Alvarez said he won`t lose any sleep if Olympique Marseille`s interest in Luis Fabiano leads to the Brazil striker leaving Spain.

Marseille president Jean-Claude Dassier said this week luring Fabiano to Ligue 1 was a priority and Spanish media have reported the French club would pay 15 million euros (USD 19.2 million) and offer the 29-year-old a three-year contract.

"I am concerned but I am not going to lose any sleep over it," Alvarez told a news conference ahead of Saturday`s Spanish Super Cup first leg against Barcelona.

"We are talking about an exceptional player but if the deal is profitable for the club... there`s nothing you can do."

"I will say what I have always said, if Luis Fabiano leaves then someone else will come," he added.

"We`ll have to bring in a player who can guarantee success, who knows Spanish soccer and who is a proven goalscorer."
