Martina rubbishes talk of January exit from Old Trafford

Manchester United defender Nemanja VidicNemanja Vidic‘s agent has ruled out any possibility of the Manchester United captain leaving the club in January.

The Serbian defender has been touted as a potential transfer target for Juventus and Barcelona, but Silvano Martina has rubbished claims that the centre-half could leave Old Trafford.

“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,” the representative told, translated to English by Sky Sports.

“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 is already part of a top club and there are no negotiations with Juventus or Barcelona,” he concluded.

Vidic is currently on the sidelines after undergoing a knee operation, and is expected to make his return for the Red Devils in late November or early December.
