Nemanja Vidic’s agent has dismissed claims he suggested the centre-back would be keen on a move to Barcelona.
Vidic’s impressive form for Manchester United since his arrival at Old Trafford in 2006 has led to speculation that several European clubs are interested in buying him.
Barca have been mentioned as suitors for Vidic, and quotes from his agent indicated that he would be keen on a deal.
Paolo Fabbri was reported to have told Catalan radio station RAC-1 and El Mundo Deportivo: “It would be a dream for Vidic to play for Barcelona. He would be delighted to join them, as he wants to play in La Liga.
“We have to take a close look at the situation. But things are complicated at the moment. Manchester United have just lost Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez, and they do not want to lose another important player.”
However, Fabbri has since denied making the comments and has instead insisted Vidic is happy at Premier League champions United.
“This is not true,” he said. “I never said these things. Nemanja is happy in Manchester. If Barcelona do make an offer for him then it is up to United to make a decision.”
