Agent: Vidic going nowhere

Published Add your comment

Nemanja Vidic's agent has dismissed talk of the Manchester United captain leaving Old Trafford.

The 29-year-old Serbia defender has been linked with a move away from England - Juventus the latest club reportedly interested - despite being a key part of Sir Alex Ferguson's side and having three years left on his contract. However, his agent Silvano Martina has rejected any talk of a summer exit.

"He's a player that everyone wants. I talked to him about a hypothetical transfer and he replied, 'I am the captain of Manchester United, earning well, I've won almost everything....why should I go to Italy right now, when Italian football is going through a turbulent period?'," Martina told Radio Sportiva.

"This response removes any doubt about where his future lies - he stays where he is."

Vidic joined United from Spartak Moscow in January 2006 and signed a fresh four-year contract last August. He lifted the Barclays Premier League trophy last month - an English record 19th league title - and led the Red Devils to the Champions League final.
