Juventus dispel speculation linking them with Manchester United's Park Ji-Sung

The Italian giants were linked with the Korean midfielder on Saturday with sporting director Fabio Paratici said to "definitely want" him but the club have denied their interest

Juventus have moved to quell speculation linking them with Manchester United's Korean midfielder Park Ji-Sung.

The Turin club were linked with the 30-year-old Korean, who is out of contract at Old Trafford in mid-2012, after comments made by agent Federico Pastorello.

It was reported Pastorello would hold negotiations with Park on behalf of Juventus and the agent told Calcio Mercato the club's sporting director Fabio Paratici “definitely wants” the Korean.

However, Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta told Sky Sport Italia the club was not in the market to sign to former PSV Eindhoven man.

"No, we're not interested in Park,” said Marotta. "We will sign a quality player in attack, certainly a top striker. We already have a world class addition to our midfield with Andrea Pirlo."

Park had told reporters earlier in the week he was keen to stay in Manchester.

"It would be honour for me to keep playing for Manchester United," said Park.

"I have nothing to say about any transfer rumours - I just want to stay at Manchester United.

"As an Asian player, it's honour to play for the biggest club in the world. I and other players want to achieve 20th league title for United."
