Lerby rules out Premier League move for Dutchman
The Dutch midfielder has been recently linked with a move to big spending Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala and is the subject of long-term interest from the Red Devils.
The 28-year-old has been out of action since September, following an injury sustained whilst in Serie A action against Chievo.
His absence has coincided with an improvement in form for the Milan giants, which has led to reports that they could be tempted to cash in.
However, the playmaker’s agent Soren Lerby claims that his client will not be leaving the club to join Anzhi, or anybody else:
“Wesley doesn’t want to go to Anzhi. I feel that these are just rumours and I don’t know where they’ve come from.” He is quoted by ESPN.
“At this point you should probably ask Anzhi and Guus Hiddink about it. It’s the first time I’ve heard anything about it because Wes is very happy at Inter and has a great relationship with everyone.”
United are believed to have been chasing the Holland international for some time and were said to have made an approach during the summer transfer window.
A deal could not be reached, but Sir Alex Ferguson is still thought to be keen on adding the midfielder to his Old Trafford squad.
