Manchester United and Barcelona have been warned off making a move for midfielder Marco Fabian.

The Mexican starlet has been heavily linked with a move to England after impressing at Chivas Guadalajara, with claiming two Barclays Premier League teams have joined a Spanish outfit in pursuit of the 22-year-old.

Club president Jorge Vergara has urged clubs not to make a move for the player though, insisting Chivas have no intention of selling the player.

"There hasn't been interest because we're not interested in selling him," he told the same website.

"No clubs have been in contact, that's not true. Marco has a contract for five years. We want to keep him as he is a big part of our future."

A club that only fields Mexican players, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is well aware of the potential climbing through the ranks at the Estadio Omnilife.

The Red Devils raided the Rebaño Sagrado for Javier Hernandez back in the summer of 2010, with Chicharito becoming an instant hit at Old Trafford after a stunning first season alongside Wayne Rooney at Manchester United.

Adding Fabian to the Manchester United ranks now appears unlikely though, and unless the player provides an indication that he's keen to leave his current club, both Ferguson and Barca boss Pep Guardiola appear set to miss out.
