Manchester United have not held talks with Liverpool target Jordy Clasie over the possibility of a transfer to Manchester United, according to the Feyenoord midfielder's agent Wessel Weezenberg.
Sky Sports reports how the 22-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer, following an impressive season in the Eredivisie in 2013/14.
Clasie is busy preparing for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil with the Holland national team, which is currently being coached by Manchester United's new manager Louis van Gaal.
The Red Devils have been credited with an interest in luring a number of Netherlands stars to Old Trafford, following the 62-year-old's recent appointment, but so far there has been no formal approach for Clasie.
"There has been no contact recently with the Viola [Fiorentina] or with the Red Devils [Manchester United] and neither with other clubs," Weezenberg told Calciomercato. "He is focused exclusively on the national team."
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has also been mooted as an admirer of the Feyenoord star in previous transfer windows, but judging by Weezenberg's latest comments Liverpool will face an uphill battle to convince Clasie to move to Anfield if Manchester United and Van Gaal's interest is genuine.
"The opportunity to train daily with a great coach like [Louis] van Gaal is very important for him," added the Dutchman's representative.
"Jordy's future will probably be decided after the World Cup."
