Vucinic: Reported United target
Mirko Vucinic has reiterated his desire to stay at Roma amid strong reports linking him with Manchester United.
The talented striker has emerged as a possible target for Sir Alex Ferguson as he begins his search to replace Real Madrid-bound Cristiano Ronaldo.
Reports in Italy suggest informal contact has been made between the clubs for the Montenegro forward but Vucinic, who recently signed a new four-year deal, is happy to stay at the capital club.
"It's certainly pleasing that a great club like that are interested in me," he told Corriere dello Sport. "But I have only heard about it from the newspapers.
"At the moment I'm only thinking about relaxing by the seaside with my family.
"I've just signed a new contract and I'd like to stay at Roma."
Roma reportedly refused a €22million offer from United last summer for Vucinic but, knowing they have to sell to buy, could accept €25million for the 25-year-old.
