Palermo midfielder Armin Bacinovic has not been discussing a move to Manchester United, according to the player's agent.

The 21-year-old has made quiet an impression at the Serie A side, and after expressing a desire to move to the Premier League, has been heavily linked to the 18-time league champions.

However the Slovenian's agent has moved quickly to refute claims he's been talking with United.

"Manchester United? I have no contacts with them, these rumours are completely new to me. Some teams from the Premier League wanted some information about him, but not Manchester United," his agent, Amir Ruznic told Reterete24.


The revelations are a blow to United, who are looking for a dominating midfielder to replace the crocked Owen Hargreaves who after a should injury appears to be on his way out for Old Trafford.

Liverpool have also been tracking the midfielder, who they see as the ideal foil for Raul Meireles and Steven Gerrard in The Reds midfield.

Kenny Dalglish is expect to be given a health transfer budget to develop his squad this summer as they look for a way back into the Champions League.

And it might be that very bargaining chip that tempts Bacinovic to plum for United, as they club have consistently qualified for Europe's Premier club competition, whereas Liverpool have fallen behind in the pecking order to Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.
