The agent of Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic has responded to reports that the Serbian could be leaving Old Trafford.

The centre-back has been linked with a move to Serie A champions Juventus and La Liga side Barcelona, but his agent has moved to clarify his position.

Vidic is currently sidelined with a knee injury and is not expected back for another month, but this has not stopped the speculation persisting over whether he could be departing.

Sir Alex Ferguson had to endure the second half of last season without his captain following a knee ligament injury in the clash with FC Basel, which saw them crash out of the Champions League at the group stages last season.

Now his agent, Silvio Martina, has spoken to the Italian press to insist that the 30-year-old is not thinking about a move away from Manchester United, but is only concentrating on getting back on the pitch.

“Vidic is not playing at this time because he had an operation and is thinking only for his recovery,” Martina told ITA Sport Press.

“Barcelona? Vidic is already part of a big club, there is no negotiation.”
