thumbnail Hello,

The Serbian defender has recently struggled with fitness issues but his representative insists he will not leave Old Trafford, despite reported interest from Juventus

Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic is staying at Old Trafford, according to his agent Silvano Martina.

The Serbian centre-back has been the subject of transfer speculation in recent months, with Juventus and Barcelona said to be monitoring his situation.

But, despite the Red Devils captain missing the latter half of last season and eight weeks of this campaign through injury, his representative insists he is not looking for a fresh challenge.

"Vidic is already part of a top club and there are no negotiations with Juventus or Barcelona," Martinia told itasportpress.it.

"Vidic is not playing at this time because he's had surgery, so he's only thinking about his recovery and not about the transfer market.

"Juventus are complete with their non-EU players for this season and it is highly unlikely they will make a bid for Vidic, therefore I can categorically rule out any interest from them.”

Vidic has made over 150 appearances for Sir Alex Ferguson's side since a €10.5 million move from Spartak Moscow in 2005.
