Nemanja Vidic has attempted to draw a line under the latest reports linking him with a move away from Manchester United after declaring himself happy at Old Trafford.
Vidic, 28, has recently returned to action following a thigh injury and insists that he sees his future in Manchester.
His claim contradicts several recent reports in which it was suggested that the Serbia international defender was looking for a move away from the Premier League as his family had not settled in England.
Vidic joined United from Spartak Moscow in January 2006 and has become a rock at the back for the Red Devils.
"I am glad to have been part of this club for so many years and if I could be one of the bases on which a new team is built I would be very happy," he declared.
"I have never said I want to go and play in another country. Other people have spoken or written about it and I am not happy with that.
"But I have said in the past what I think. I don't want to keep talking about it because I can't stop what people say. The fact is I am happy here."
