Manchester United will not be signing Barcelona striker Eidur Gudjohnsen this summer, according to the player's representative. Rumours had linked the former Chelsea star, who has struggled in his first season at Barca, with a move to Old Trafford but Arnor Gujohnsen, Eidur's father and agent, claims United have not been in contact with him. He said: "Honestly, I have not heard anything from Manchester United. I can confirm that. "It's only speculation. I think the club will decide many things after the weekend and what is going to happen after the game (against Gimnastic). "Then, maybe you might see a clearer picture of what's going to happen. But at this stage, nothing." When asked whether his son would be staying at the Camp Nou, Gudjohnsen added: "Probably. He's very happy there. "He hasn't played so much after Christmas, but he came in before Christmas when Samuel Eto'o was injured and did quite well. "So he actually wants to have another chance next season to prove himself even more." The 28-year-old Iceland international has been restricted to only 18 starts for Barcelona this season.
