ShareNemanja Vidic's agent has dismissed talk of the Manchester United captain leaving Old Trafford.

The 29-year-old Serbia defender has been linked with a move away from England - Juventus the latest club reportedly interested - despite being a key part of Sir Alex Ferguson's side and having three years left on his contract.

However, his agent Silvano Martina has rejected any talk of a summer exit after asking the player if he wanted a move.

Vidic told Radio Sportiva: 'He's a player that everyone wants. I talked to him about a hypothetical transfer and he replied, "I am the captain of Manchester United, earning well, I've won almost everything. Why should I go to Italy right now, when Italian football is going through a turbulent period?" This response removes any doubt about where his future lies - he stays where he is.'
