Manchester United midfield target waiting for Fiorentina talks

Manchester United target Adem Ljajic has yet to hold talks with Fiorentina over a new contract, according to his agent.

Sky Sports reports how the 21-year-old midfielder has been linked with a host of top European clubs, following a series of scintillating performances in Serie 'A' in 2012/13.

The Serbia international has attracted widespread interest in Italy, from the likes of AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus, while Manchester United pulled out of a deal to bring Ljajic to Old Trafford in 2009.

As a result, the former Partizan Belgrade star moved to Tuscany early the following year, where he has gone on to establish himself as a star performer for Fiorentina.

Ljajic is under contract at Stadio Artemio Franchi until 2014, and with little over 12 months remaining on his deal is expected to open negotiations with the Florence-based club.

But, according to his representative, Fali Ramadani, negotiations have failed to materialise, which will encourage the likes of Manchester United in their prospective pursuit of Ljajic, even if the agent has received no enquiries.

"At the moment there is no news and no meetings planned with Fiorentina's leaders," Ramadani told "We have to talk with the club to understand if Adem could extend the contract.

"The interest of Inter, AC and Juventus for him? No-one has called me."
