Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic has not agreed to join Juventus on a free transfer when his contract expires at the end of the new season, according to the agent of the Serbian defender.

Reports on Monday claimed Juventus had focused their attention on the acquisition of Vidic when he becomes a free agent in June 2014, even though the player is likely to be offered a contract extension with Manchester United.

However, with suggestions contact has already been made between Juventus and the Vidic camp, the 31-year-old's representative Silvano Martina has categorically denied claims any negotiations have taken place.

"There is absolutely nothing to do with Juve," he told

"The rumours that have emerged in recent days are just crap."

The likelihood of Vidic leaving Manchester United next year would appear to be slim, regardless of his injury problems, with the club historically staying loyal to their more experienced players.

Rio Ferdinand agreed a one-year contract extension this summer, while Ryan Giggs has been afforded the opportunity to sign a new deal on a season-by-season basis.

Vidic, for his part, remains happy at Old Trafford and is eager to get started under new manager David Moyes, having missed much of pre-season through injury.

"I have respect for the great job David did at Everton," he told reporters.

"I’m looking forward to working with him."
