Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has slammed rumours that he could be on his way to bitter rivals Manchester United this summer, reports the Daily Mail.

The long-term Liverpool centre-back has opened the door to a possible move away from the club this season after refusing to sign a new contract at the club.

The defender will add to Brendan Rodgers' transfer window headache as want away winger Raheem Sterling is still yet to sign his new contract offer.

The club, however, will be happy that they have managed to tie captain Joran Henderson down to a new deal after there seemed to be some early complications.

Skrtel has played 220 times in the league for Liverpool, and when asked on a possible switch to Old Trafford, he said: "I can imagine going anywhere, but United? Never."

Decision time

The 30-year-old is currently on international duty with Slovakia, and it is believed he will decide on his future after his teams crunch match with Macedonia this week.

Skrtel has previously stated the contract offer he received from Liverpool was 'unacceptable' and as such is yet to agree to a new deal to stay in Merseyside.

The Handlova-born player has just one year remaining on his current deal with the Merseyside outfit, so it remains to be seen as to whether he will sign on for the long-term.
