Mario Gotze's agent denies Manchester United contact

The Germany international, seen as one of Europe's brightest prospects, had been reported to have had approaches from other clubs but those close to him say that he will stay
Mario Gotze's agent has denied rumours that approaches have been made for the Borussia Dortmund superstar by Manchester United and Juventus.

SportsTotal represents the 19-year-old playmaker, and the Daily Mail this week claimed that the company's CEO, Dirk Hebel, had admitted that the two clubs had contacted him over a possible summer transfer.

However, the agency's managing director, Volker Struth, has clarified matters, stating that there had been no contact from Manchester or Turin.

"The reports from England are not true," the representative told Bild.

"This newspaper has not talked with my colleague, Dirk Hebel. The most important thing now is for Mario to get fit again.

"When it all boils down to it, he will play next season with Borussia," Struth reiterated.

Jurgen Klopp's side seemingly have no interest in selling the Germany international, either, with the club keen to keep the starlet for next term.

"We have all agreed that he will play next season in Dortmund," sporting director Michael Zorc adamantly stated.

Gotze, who is currently out injured, has a contract with the Bundesliga champions until June 2014.
