Nemanja Vidic's agent has dismissed talk of the Manchester United captain leaving Old Trafford.

The 29-year-old Serbia defender has been linked with a move away from England – Juventus are the latest club reported to be interested – despite having three years left on his United contract.

However, his agent Silvano Martina has rejected any talk of a summer departure. Speaking to Radio Sportiva in Italy, he said: "He's a player that everyone wants. I talked to him about a hypothetical transfer and he replied, 'I am the captain of Manchester United, earning well, I've won almost everything ... Why should I go to Italy right now, when Italian football is going through a turbulent period?'

"This response removes any doubt about where his future lies – he stays where he is."

Vidic joined United from Spartak Moscow in January 2006 and signed a new four-year contract last August. He was a key performer in United's Premier League title victory and run to the Champions League final last season.
