Manchester United target Mirko Vucinic insists he is in no rush to leave AS Roma. The 25-year-old striker has been linked with a move to Old Trafford as a possible replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who looks certain to finalise his transfer to Real Madrid later this month. Reports in Italy had hinted that United had expressed their interest in the Montenegro international, who recently signed a new four-year deal with Roma. "It's certainly pleasing that a great club like that are interested in me," Vucinic told Corriere dello Sport. "But I have only heard about it from the newspapers. "At the moment I'm only thinking about relaxing by the seaside with my family. "I've just signed a new contract and I'd like to stay at Roma." The former Lecce forward has scored 30 goals in 64 starts and 43 substitute appearances for Roma.
