Agent: Vidic to stay at United

02 July 2009 04:40
The agent of Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic has moved to try and put an end to speculation linking his client with a summer exit from Old Trafford. The 27-year-old Serbia international has been linked with the likes of Barcelona and Internazionale, but Silvano Martina is confident that Vidic will remain with United. He told the Gazzetta dello Sport: "Even though Vidic has not spoken for the last three months, there have been false interviews published in the press. "I read that he wants to leave, that his wife is not happy at Manchester, but all of these stories are false. "He is very annoyed and saddened by these stories that give the wrong impression. "In football you never know what can happen, but I believe he will remain at Manchester United, one of the strongest clubs in the world. "If Vidic or I should have problems with the club, we will talk directly to (manager) Alex Ferguson and not to the newspapers." Vidic joined United in January 2006 from Spartak Moscow and has since scored 12 goals in 153 appearances in all competitions.
