Manchester United Vidic rules out January exit

Nemanja Vidic will not leave Manchester United for Juventus or Barcelona in January, despite renewed talk of the Serbia international leaving Old Trafford.

United's captain Vidic, who missed the last five months of last season through injury, is sidelined for eight weeks following a knee operation.

He is expected to return before the New Year but the 30-year-old's Italian agent Silvano Martina insists the defender is not heading for the exit when the transfer window re-opens for business in January.

“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,' Martina told itasportpress.it.

“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.”
