Manchester United are tracking the progress of Serbian midfielder Milos Krasic, the player's agent has confirmed.

The 26-year-old left CSKA Moscow for Juventus amidst interest from a number of clubs across Europe in 2010, and enjoyed a solid first season with the Old Lady after a reported €15 million switch.

However, interest is thought to remain in the former Vojvodina starlet, with Sir Alex Ferguson continuing to keep tabs on the player's progress in Serie 'A'.

"Manchester United have been interested in Krasic for two years, they like the player, but there have been no negotiations," agent Dejan Joksimovic told tuttomercatoweb.

"Every day Krasic is rumoured to be departing Juventus but currently, there are no signs of this happening."

Manchester United were heavily linked with a number of players in a similar mould to Krasic this summer, with Wesley Sneijder the most high-profile of those thought to be on the Red Devils' radar.


 

However, the emergence of young players at Old Trafford, most notably Tom Cleverley, suggests Manchester United may not be looking for midfield reinforcements anymore following Paul Scholes' retirement in the summer.

A move for Krasic seems a long way off at the current time.
