Nemanja Vidic's agent has dismissed rumours that the Manchester United defender is on his way to Juventus.
• Vidic on course for pre-season
Vidic has been sidelined since damaging his cruciate ligaments in December but remains on course to be fit for the start of next season.
However, with the likes of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones featuring in his absence, Sir Alex Ferguson recently warned the Serbian not to expect to walk straight back into the team.
Reports in Italy have linked the United skipper with a move to Serie A but Vidic's agent, Silvano Martina, insists such claims are unfounded.
Asked about a move to Italy, Martina told tuttomercatoweb: "You have to consider that he has a non-EU passport, and that would make it difficult for him to arrive in Serie A. I can assure you that I have never spoken with Juventus about Nemanja."
