Silvano Martina has rubbished suggestions that Julio Cesar could leave Inter Milan for Manchester United in the summer.

The former Nerazzurri goalkeeper - who represents the likes of Gianluigi Buffon and Nemanja Vidic amongst others - has garnered a reputation as a well respected football agent since his retirement in 1991, playing a part in a number of high profile transfers in recent years.

However, reports linking the 32-year-old Brazilian international with a move to Old Trafford are wide of the mark according to Martina, who believes Sir Alex Ferguson will keep faith in recently acquired Spanish stopper David De Gea.

"I have to be honest, in my opinion there isn't even a one per cent chance that such a move will take place," he told "It seems absurd to me.

"Manchester United spent €25m on David De Gea and I don't think it is likely that they'll bring in Julio Cesar alongside him."

Cesar is one of Inter's highest earners at the San Siro, with a reported annual salary of around €4.5million. He is under contract with the Serie A giants until 2014, and would seem an unlikely target for the reigning Premier League champions.

"That would only complicate matters for Manchester United as De Gea would totally lose all tranquillity," Martina added.

"It's a move that can't happen."
